§ 45. Mr. Stonehouse
asked the Prime Minister if he will make a statement on his discussions with the Federal Prime 579 Minister, with particular reference to the appointment of a Parliamentary Commission to Rhodesia and Nyasaland.
§ The Prime Minister (Mr. Harold Macmillan)
I have had a number of valuable discussions with the Federal Prime Minister, whom we are always glad to see in London, but I am not at present in a position to make a statement.
§ Mr. Stonehouse
Is the Prime Minister aware that there is no anxiety on this side of the House to have a Parliamentary Commission to Rhodesia and Nyasaland which has on it representatives from within the Federation? There will be no value in such a Parliamentary Commission with back-seat drivers.
§ The Prime Minister
The hon. Gentleman is making a statement, but I am afraid that I cannot yet make mine.
