70. Mr. Skinnard

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations how many Nyasaland Africans have been deported from Southern Rhodesia within the last six months; and in what circumstances.

The Governor of Southern Rhodesia reported in August that two Nyasaland natives had been deported to their country of origin. The Government of Southern Rhodesia took this action in accordance with legislation for which under the Constitution, they had sole responsibility.
