§ 32. Lieut.-Colonel MEYLER
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the lands of the Barotse and other tribes of Northern Rhodesia have been surveyed and clearly delimited; and, if not, whether it is proposed to undertake such survey in the near future?
I am aware, no such surveys have been carried out except in connection with the international boundary of the territory, and I doubt whether a general delimitation of tribal lands based on a survey is practicable or necessary. I will, however, ask the Governor for a report on the subject.
§ Earl WINTERTON
When my right hon. Friend addresses the Governor on the subject, will he take up the general question of the survey of Northern Rhodesia, which is in a most chaotic state? There has never been a proper survey made.
