HC Deb 16 December 1949 vol 470 c345W
Mr. Platte-Mills

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations what are the terms of the arrangement whereby United States technicians are to carry out a survey for a link between the Rhodesian and East African railway systems; and why this work is not being carried out by British subjects.

Mr. Creech Jones

I have been asked to reply. The preliminary survey was carried out by a British firm in association with American consultants. Their report is now being considered.
