HC Deb 22 February 1939 vol 344 cc387-8W
Mr. Creech Jones

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, in view of the examination made by Major Orde-Browne into the recruitment of labour in Northern Rhodesia for work in Tanganyika, any steps have yet been taken to give effect to his recommendations in paragraph 168 of his recent Report?

Mr. M. MacDonald

A Senior Officer of the Northern Rhodesia Government visited Dar-es-Salaam last year to discuss with the Tanganyika authorities certain recommendations in Major Orde-Browne's Report, including those in paragraph 168. These matters are still, I understand, being considered by the Tanganyika Government. Meanwhile, no new arrangements have been made for facilitating the employment of Northern Rhodesia natives in Tanganyika. The Governor of Northern Rhodesia has promised me an early further report on the subject.
