HC Deb 20 June 1951 vol 489 cc47-8W
9. Mr. J. Hynd

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that the delegation from Nyasaland to the Festival of Britain contains no African representative; that this was also the case with the delegation to the Africa Conference of 1948, and to "Colonial Month" in 1949; and whether he will take steps to ensure that such representation is included in this delegation.

Mr. Dugdale

My right hon. Friend is in communication with the Governor of Nyasaland with a view to the inclusion of an African member in the Nyasaland delegation, and will inform the hon. Member of the result in due course. The hon. Member is, however, misinformed regarding the Africa Conference of 1948 and "Colonial Month" of 1949. Two Africans were included in the Nyasaland delegation for the former, and no delegations were invited or sent for the latter.
