HC Deb 20 June 1966 vol 730 c12W
66. Mr. Tilney

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations whether, in the interests of economy, he will change the deputy high commissions in Nigeria into consulates.

Mr. Bottomley

We are at present engaged in reviewing the structure of our representation in Nigeria, and we hope that as a result of this review, we shall be able to make significant overall economies. The question of changing the titles of our posts outside Lagos in Nigeria is a separate one with no direct bearing on the cost of the posts.
