§ Mr. Mathew
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies in how many cases British subjects or persons of British parentage, employed by the Nigerian Governments, have been refused re-engagement on the grounds that they were born or educated in South Africa; and if he will take steps to discourage such discrimination.
§ Mr. Iain Macleod
Re-engagements are the responsibility of the Federal and Regional Governments in Nigeria but so far only the case on which my hon. Friend has written to me has come to my notice.
This is a question of policy which must, I think, be left to the Nigerian Governments at the present stage of constitutional development.
