Alert me about debates like this
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether Aden is now under the administration of the Colonial Office; and, if not, when it is intended that this Protectorate be transferred from the charge of the India Office and Government of Bombay?
No, Sir; the question is still under consideration. I am not in a position to say when the transfer will take place.
As this question has been under consideration for a couple of years, is there any likelihood of a final decision being made before long?
A final decision would have been made long ago had the only people in whose consideration it lay been His Majesty's Government.
