I have received a copy of a Resolution adopted by the House of Representatives of Nigeria on 11th March, 1952. I desire to read it to the House—

"That this House of Representatives of the people of Nigeria, deeply appreciating the friendship and good wishes of the Parliament of the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland, expresses its thanks for the message sent to them by the Lord Chancellor and Speaker: in thanking the three Members of that Parliament who have travelled so far to carry the message, the House of Representatives asks them, on their return to the United Kingdom, to convey to their respective Houses, which together constitute the oldest Assembly in the Commonwealth, a message of affection and esteem from the new Parliament of Nigeria, founded on the principles which have made the Parliament at Westminster an inspiration to the free peoples of the world."
