HC Deb 27 January 1958 vol 581 c32W
Captain Kerby

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will give, in carats and value, the quantity of diamonds exported legally from Sierra Leone in 1957; and if he will give an estimate of illicit diamond digging and smuggling out of the Colony for the same year, for 1956, 1955, 1954 and 1953.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

I am asking the Governor of Sierra Leone for this information, so far as it is available, and I will write to my hon. and gallant Friend in due course.
