§ Mr. HANNON
Has the right hon. Gentleman taken care to ensure the safe return of these distinguished gentlemen?
§ Earl WINTERTON
Will the visit to Rhodesia include what was formerly known as North-West Rhodesia, as well as North-East Rhodesia? Do the Commission propose, for example, to visit Livingstone?
In answer to the Noble Lord, that point will be the subject of further inquiries. In answer to my hon. Friend the Member for Silvertown (Mr. J. Jones), I was not aware that there was a distinction between real and unreal on these benches.
§ Mr. PRINGLE
Is the right hon. Gentleman not aware of the distinction between the intellectual and the nonintellectual sections of his party?
