§ Mr. Swingler
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what facilities are available in Barotseland, Northern Rhodesia, to enable Africans to purchase books; and what proposals are being considered by the Governments of Northern Rhodesia and Nyasaland for travelling libraries and other means of encouraging self-education amongst Africans.
§ Mr. Profumo
Both Governments maintain organisations for the supply of books to the general African public. I have asked the Governors for further information about the Barotseland Protectorate and about any proposals which may be under consideration, and I will write to the hon. Member when it is received.
