HC Deb 13 May 1958 vol 588 c13W
Mrs. Castle

The scheme, incidentally, is not designed for British ex-Servicemen, arrangements for whose immigration are not the responsibility of the Northern Rhodesia Government, although it is hoped that some of them will take part in the scheme when they have acquired the necessary farming experience.
