HC Deb 16 February 1955 vol 537 c58W
101. Mr. J. Johnson

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies why, in his proposed constitutional changes for Nyasaland, there is no provision for the election of Africans in the Legislative Council in view of the fact that there are to be elections of non-African members by an electoral roll in constituencies.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

I consider that the present method of selection of African members of Legislative Council is that most suited to the present stage of social and educational development of the African population in Nyasaland.
