§ 28. Mr. Brockway
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what decision has been reached by the Government of Tanganyika regarding the lifting of the ban on open air meetings addressed by leaders of the Tanganyika African National Union.
§ The Secretary of State for the Colonies (Mr. Alan Lennox-Boyd)
I am told by the Governor of Tanganyika that instructions were issued to the Commissioner of Police on 2nd July for the resumption of the grant of permits for public meetings to be addressed by officers of the Tanganyika African National Union under such conditions as may be specified in individual permits.
§ Mr. Brockway
We welcome that concession, but may we have some particulars about these conditions? Is not it desirable that Mr. Nyerere, the leader of the Tanganyika African National Union, should have these facilities on his return from the United Nations?
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
I will consider publishing in the OFFICIAL REPORT the sort of conditions that might be instituted.
