§ 3. Mrs. Castle
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies why the new High Court at Lusaka, Northern Rhodesia, has separate rooms for African and European witnesses.
§ Mrs. Castle
Does not the Colonial Secretary agree that there is no difference in principle between a case like that and the case of the South African courts where there are separate entrances for coloured and non-coloured, and separate public galleries? Will he take it from me that I have seen this High Court at Lusaka? Does he not agree that it is shocking to have apartheid in a British Protectorate?
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
I think I had better wait until I hear from the acting Governor, but my views on distinctions based on colour are well known, as are also my views on the need for Governments to set a good example in this matter.
