§ Mr. J. Johnson
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many African co-operative officers, and from which territories, were invited to attend the conference of the Northern Rhodesian Department of Co-operative Societies and Marketing which was held in Lusaka from 10th to 13th December, and to which the heads of the co-operative and marketing departments in Southern Rhodesia and Nyasaland were invited for the first time.
§ Mr. Profumo
Four African members of the Northern Rhodesian Department itself attended this purely departmental conference. The heads of the Southern Rhodesian and Nyasaland Departments were invited as guest speakers, but the latter could not attend.
