Mr William Ormsby-Gore: The composition of the new Legislative Council has been completed, but I regret to say that one of the European elected members has since died. Mr. H. R. Montgomery and Dr. C. J. Wilson have been appointed as nominated unofficial members on behalf of the interests of the African community. As regards the last part of the question, in the present stage of political development of the native...

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Health.: Kenya (Legislative Council, Native Representation). ( 3 May 1938)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: That is extremely difficult at the present stage, where you have a great admixture of races.

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Health.: Kenya (Legislative Council, Native Representation). ( 3 May 1938)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: No. It is extremely difficult in the circumstances, and I want to make it quite clear that there has never been any suggestion that these two people represent the natives.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture.: British Somaliland. (27 Apr 1938)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: I do not think that is the case. Inhabitants of a British Protectorate, such as Nigeria, Uganda and Northern Rhodesia, are British-protected persons when outside the three-mile limit.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture.: British Somaliland. (27 Apr 1938)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: It raises a very large question. Hitherto it has been considered undesirable to annex a native Protectorate and make it a Colony. It is true that in many cases, such as Nigeria, the capital town, Lagos, is made a Colony, and the rest is maintained as a native Protectorate. That is a device which has been adopted, but the general conversion of Protectorates and protected States into Colonies...

Oral Answers to Questions — Income Tax.: Palestine (Situation). (26 Apr 1938)
