HC Deb 09 February 1955 vol 536 c222W
91. Mr. J. Hynd

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what steps have been taken to investigate the question of franchise for British protected persons in Northern Rhodesia.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

I have nothing to add to the statement made by my predecessor on 11th February, 1954. All parties concerned in Northern Rhodesia are considering this problem, and I do not expect the Governor to put forward agreed recommendations for some time yet.
