§ 69. Mr. Lennox-Boyd
asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether, under the recent proclamation issued by the Union Government of South Africa on foreign activities in South-West Africa, freedom to carry on political activities is to be limited to British subjects or to Union nationals?
The Under-Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs (Marquess of Hartington)
I understand that the restrictions on political activities are, under the proclamation, limited to aliens. Consequently the proclamation does not affect British subjects, whether they are Union nationals or not.
§ Mr. Thurtle
Will the Noble Lord see that there is as much political freedom enjoyed by Germans resident in West Africa as is enjoyed by German citizens in Germany?
