HC Deb 28 July 1949 vol 467 c156W
37. Mr. Platts-Mills

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations what action he proposes to take arising from the decision of the Bamangwato tribe in Bechuanaland to accept Seretse Khama as chief, notwithstanding his marriage to a white woman, also a subject of His Majesty.

Mr. Gordon-Walker

The matter is still under consideration. I hope that a statement will very shortly be made.
