HC Deb 13 November 1917 vol 99 cc204-5
40. Commander WEDGWOOD

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he can give an assurance that until the advice of the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council in the Rhodesian land case has been tendered to His Majesty's Government, no natives will be evicted from lands lately included in the reserves without the definite sanction of the Secretary of State?


I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to Part II. of the Report of the Commission (see p. 22 of Cd. 8674), from which he will see that he need not fear evictions. The Report has been approved by the Secretary of State.
