HC Deb 02 February 1961 vol 633 c157W
102. Mr. R. Edwards

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware of the petitions submitted to the Governor of Sierra Leone in connection with the alleged monopoly for the purchase of imported rice and other irregularities affecting members of the Government, together with a request for the establishment of a Royal Commission to inquire into these allegations; and what reply has been sent.

Mr. H. Fraser

The answer to the first part of the Question is, "No". The second part does not therefore arise.
