§ 22. Mrs. Castle
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will make a statement on the results of the discussions between the Governments of Northern Rhodesia, Nyasaland and the Federation on the issue of passports to British protected persons in the Federation.
§ Mrs. Castle
Is the Coloniel Secretary aware that we on this side of the House are very anxious about this question and about the doubt which a previous Answer has thrown on the rights of protected persons in this area? How soon will he be able to make this important statement?
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
I am very conscious of the interest which the House as a whole takes in this matter, and I will give an Answer as soon as I possibly can.
