§ Mrs. Castle
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many Europeans and Africans, respectively, there are in the Nyasaland Civil Service; and how many of the Europeans are drawn from within the Federation, and how many from outside it.
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
There are 944 Europeans and 8,450 Africans in the Nyasaland Civil Service. To obtain the information required to show how many Europeans are drawn from within and outside the Federation, it would be necessary to carry out a scrutiny of individual records, involving considerable time and labour, and I cannot ask the Governor to undertake this in present circumstances.
