HC Deb 01 April 1958 vol 585 c114W
Mr. Brockway

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies to what extent the Government of Northern Rhodesia guarantees the cost of house building to European immigrants, Asian immigrants and indigenous Africans, respectively.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

Under the General Territorial Scheme, Government guarantees 15 per cent. of a 90 per cent. building society loan for a house valued at not more than £3,500; anyone able to satisfy the usual building society requirements of financial soundness is eligible and no criteria of race or length of domicile in the territory apply.
