§ 73. Mr. Parker
asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations whether it is proposed to develop further the Lake Ngami area in Bechuanaland as a settlement area for the Hereros in Bechuanaland and for local tribes.
§ Mr. P. Noel-Baker
The Lake Ngami area is already intensively used by the Hereros and by the other tribes of Ngamiland, and there are no immediate plans for further development. If such plans were carried out, they would, of 135W course, have to be for the benefit of Ngamiland as a whole; they could only be carried out if communications were improved.
