HC Deb 25 November 1958 vol 596 c31W
90. Mr. J. Johnson

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies the cost of conveying the regimental band down to Gwembe by the Governor of Northern Rhodesia; and how many Tonga tribesmen evicted because of the Kariba Dam Scheme attended on the occasion of the Governor's speech.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

There was no cost to the Government of Northern Rhodesia. The Governor discussed resettlement with the villagers on two occasions. On the first, some 80–100 villagers were present. On the second only 15 villagers were present and these were armed and prevented others from coming within earshot.
