HC Deb 28 January 1954 vol 522 cc259-60W
32. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations what communications he has recently had with, or on behalf of, Seretse Khama asking that he should be restored to his chieftainship in Bechuanaland; and what has been his reply.

Mr. J. Foster

I have received no representations recently from Seretse Khama or from any person on his behalf asking for his recognition as Chief of the Bamangwato Tribe. Seretse Khama, as the hon. Member will doubtless recall, was never appointed and never has been chief.
