§ 26. Mr. Dodds-Parker
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what progress there has been in the plans for increasing tobacco production in the railing belt of Northern Rhodesia; and what action he proposes to accelerate this development.
§ Mr. J. Griffiths
I have asked the Governor for the details of the progress made since my predecessor wrote to the hon. Member on 27th October, and will write to him as soon as I receive the reply.
§ Mr. Dodds-Parker
In view of the importance to this country of the increase in this crop, will the right hon. Gentleman see that urgent action is taken?
