HC Deb 07 March 1957 vol 566 c106W
Mr. J. Johnson

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many African farmers in Northern Rhodesia are growing Virginia flue-cured tobacco; and the acreage cultivated, and the total value of the tobacco marketed.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

So far as I am aware flue-cured tobacco is still not grown by Africans in Northern Rhodesia, but I am asking the Governor whether there has been any change in the position since the replies given to the hon. Member for Bristol, South-East (Mr. Benn) on 8th March and 11th April, 1956, and will write to the hon. Member.
