§ 2. Mr. Evelyn King
asked the Secretary of State for the Commonwealth Relations 1880 whether he is aware of the intention of the President of Zambia to declare British journalists prohibited immigrants; and what protest he is making in the light of the necessity to obtain uncensored information from that country.
§ Mr. Cledwyn Hughes
I am not aware of any such intention. Two journalists have been expelled from Zambia, one of whom was British. There is no censorship of material sent from Zambia.
§ Mr. Hughes
I have just told the hon. Gentleman that the Press is not being muzzled. It would be quite improper for me to comment on a decision of the Zambian Government. The expulsion of journalists from Zambia is a matter for the Zambian Government to decide. I hope that the hon. Gentleman will keep the matter in proportion.
