10. Mr. Sorensen

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations how many administrative officials in Bechuanaland are British and South African subjects, respectively; how many are Bechuanaland Africans; and approximately how many of the non-official European population are from Britain and elsewhere, respectively.

Mr. Gordon-Walker

There are at present 27 administrative officers, all European, on the Bechuanaland Protectorate Establishment. Of these 12 are from the United Kingdom, 11 from the Union of South Africa, two from Southern Rhodesia, and two from the Bechuanaland Protectorate. The non-official European population of the Bechuanaland Protectorate is approximately 2,000. No details of their country of origin are available.
