HC Deb 17 May 1950 vol 475 c1205
58. Mr. Peter Freeman

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will give, in respect of the village of Zazegga, Eritrea, on which a collective fine of £1,000 has been imposed on account of the murder of an Italian in the locality, the number of inhabitants in this village, and the average annual income per head of the inhabitants.

Mr. Younger

Approximately 5,000. Sir. It is impossible to ascertain the average annual income per head of the inhabitants, but the wealth of the village may be estimated from the fact that it owns movable property, for example, cattle, with a capital value of about £40,000 and some 2,700 acres of communal land.
