§ 48. Mr. CHARLES BUXTON
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will state, in connection with the work on the construction of the Zambesi Bridge and the other schemes recommended by the Colonial Development Advisory Committee, what steps he proposes to take to secure that the conditions of labour laid down in the Colonial Development Act, 1929, shall be observed, i.e., that the wages paid shall not be less than the standard rates; that no forced labour shall be used; and that an age limit shall be established under which no children shall be employed?
§ 65. Mr. FERGUS GRAHAM
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether any definite orders in connection with the Zambesi Bridge have yet been placed; and whether negotiations with the Portuguese Government regarding the security of title for the investment of British public money in this undertaking have been satisfactorily concluded?
§ Colonel WEDGWOOD
Can my hon. Friend say whether there is any chance of the Government consulting with Sir George Schuster now that he is back from India on this matter of the Zambesi Bridge which he turned down in his original report?
