Mr. M. MacDonald:
I received various reports from the Governor of Nigeria on the subject. At the beginning of last week the Governor, on my authority, stated in the Legislative Council that His Majesty's Government has no intention of considering the transfer of Nigeria from British administration. I have received, through him, a message from the unofficial members of the Legislative Council expressing gratitude for this assurance; and I trust that the anxieties to which the hon. and gallant Member refers have now been allayed.
