§ MR. BAYLEY (Derbyshire, Chesterfield)
I beg to ask the Under-Secretary†See page 138.275 of State for Foreign Affairs if the proposed transfer of East Africa territory from the Foreign Office to the Colonial Office will include the Islands of Zanzibar and Pemba.
§ THE UNDER-SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Earl PERCY,) Kensington, S.
The status of Zanzibar and Pemba is not the same as that of the mainland territories, which are under the direct administration of the Foreign Office, and no decision has yet been arrived at on the question raised by the hon. Member.
