HC Deb 03 November 1954 vol 532 c55W
100. Mr. Benn

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what arrangements are made in Northern Rhodesia and Nyasaland to safeguard the rights of Africans in regard to land and employment; and what resources are used for this purpose.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

In both respects Africans are safeguarded by legislation of which, since it is voluminous, I am sending the hon. Member a list. The full resources of the Administration are available to see that land rights are not infringed; and it is one of the tasks of Labour Departments to protect the legitimate interests of employed Africans.
