HC Deb 16 June 1958 vol 589 c57W
Mr. Benn

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what undertaking was given by the United Kingdom delegate to the Trusteeship Council during its latest Session to consider reforms of the voting system in Tanganyika after the next elections; and what proposals are now under consideration.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

I have been asked to reply. In discussion on Tanganyika at the 21st Session of the Trusteeship Council, the United Kingdom Representative recalled the Governor's statement that electoral arrangements, such as a review of the constituencies and of the parity system of representation, would be amoung the matters to be considered by the Post Elections Constitutional Committee which it is proposed to appoint after the first territorial elections have been completed in September, 1959. No changes in the voting system are under consideration at present.
