Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Gold Coast (Cocoa Industry). ( 4 May 1938)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: I apologise for the length of the reply. As the hon. Members will be aware, the greater part of the present season's Gold Coast cocoa crop has not so far come upon the market. At the beginning of the season the majority of firms buying cocoa on the Coast entered into an agreement regarding the terms of their operations. As the growers in the Gold Coast considered that the existence of such an...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Gold Coast (Cocoa Industry). ( 4 May 1938)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: I could not answer that. That is a strictly business matter; hut the great thing is that all the firms trading in the Gold Coast will get quotas in proportion to their trade in the past two years. That is the only fair way of dealing with the emergency.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Gold Coast (Cocoa Industry). ( 4 May 1938)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: The hon. Gentleman uses the word "pool." Of course, the firms participating in the agreement deny that there is a pool. [HON. MEMBERS: "Oh! "] I do not say whether it is right or wrong. Surely, it does not depend on any firms in the Gold Coast as to what the price of cocoa is, because that is fixed by the price on the New York market.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: British Broadcast News (Empire). ( 4 May 1938)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: I must confine my reply to those parts of the British Empire which fall within the sphere of the Colonial Office. I have recently addressed inquiries to the Governments of all these territories with regard to the reception and distribution of the British Offical Wireless News Service. So far as concerns Barbados, the Leeward Islands, the Windward Islands, Malta, Seychelles and the Western...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence.: Jamaica. ( 4 May 1938)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: I assume that the hon. Member's question is based on a recent Press report containing information which, I am informed by the Governor, is out of date and grossly exaggerated. I have no information that children in Jamaica are suffering from lack of food. The reference to a hunger march appears to relate to a demonstration by ex-British West Indies Regiment Association members which took...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence.: Jamaica. ( 4 May 1938)

Some windows were broken, but there were no casualties, and one hour later the police...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence.: Jamaica. ( 4 May 1938)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: We have just had a Commission on Trinidad and, as I informed the House, the new labour adviser to the Colonial Office is going out to the West Indies; a special inquiry is now sitting in Jamaica, and we have had one in Barbados. When an incident takes place such as this one, of course, there must be a special inquiry, but as to the character of that special inquiry, naturally I must consult...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Union of South Africa (German Trade). ( 3 May 1938)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: I have been asked to reply to this question, in the absence of my right hon. Friend. My right hon.

He has no information as to any recent arrangements having been made which affect the position.
