asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies for what reasons the Co-operative Marketing Association and the Cocoa Purchasing Company were appointed as agents in the Gold Coast of the Cocoa Marketing Board for the granting of loans to Gold Coast farmers.
I am asking the Governor of the Gold Coast and will write to the hon. Member.
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies who are the Gold Coast producers' representatives on the Cocoa Marketing Board; and what organisations of producers these members represent.
Gold Coast legislation provides that the membership of the Cocoa Marketing Board shall include three producers, who are Mr. G. K. Martin, Mr. B. E. Dwira, and Mr. E. A. Haizel. The legislation does not require that they shall represent producers' organisations.
