HL Deb 10 May 1960 vol 223 c508

had given notice of his intention to ask Her Majesty's Government

Whether they will comment on Mr. Louw's statement that the African National Congress was at the root of the trouble in Nyasaland last year and that the British Government's policy in Nyasaland was broadly similar to South Africa's; and whether the police services of the Union and Rhodesia were in touch concerning the activities of the African National Congress.

The noble Viscount said: My Lords, I do not wish to ask the second Question standing in my name on the Order Paper, because I think that perhaps it might not be helpful at this moment.


My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Viscount. I think that in the circumstances it is better not to ask the Question.
