§ 84. Mr. Skinnard
asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations whether he will now abolish the custom whereby chiefs in Basutoland may call out the men of their districts for unpaid agricultural labour.
§ Mr. P. Noel-Baker
The Basutoland Council considered this matter at a recent session and recommended various reductions in customary agricultural labour. These recommendations arc at present under consideration by the Resident Commissioner in consultation with the Paramount Chief.
