HC Deb 07 July 1954 vol 529 cc168-9W
67. Mr. Rankin

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he is aware that shops in Dar-Es-Salaam serve Africans separately from other customers at a hatch or window without their entering the shop; and if he will cause this practice to stop.

Mr. Hopkinson

I understand that this system is convenient for everybody and my right hon. Friend has no intention of trying to stop it.
