HC Deb 15 April 1954 vol 526 c141W
Mr. J. Johnson

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will make a statement indicating when he intends to take over the ownership of the Nyasaland Railways.

Mr. Lyttelton

If at any time any such proposal were under consideration, I doubt whether the public interest would be served by indicating the fact in advance. In any case, this is now largely a matter for the Federal Government by virtue of item 20 of the Federal Legislative List.
