§ Mr. Paling
asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs how many natives in Southern Rhodesia were convicted under pass laws during the years 1938 and, if available, 1939?
§ Mr. Eden
The number of convictions in 1938 for contraventions of the Southern Rhodesia native pass laws, including offences under the Natives' Registration Act, was 13,273. I have not yet received the figure for the year 1939.
