HC Deb 28 July 1960 vol 627 c210W
Mr. Stonehouse

asked the Minister of State for Commonwealth Relations if his attention has been drawn to the plight of refugees from the Union of South Africa now in Bechuanaland; and what steps he has taken to assist them to establish farming co-operatives as a means to overcoming poverty.

Mr. Alport

No cases of distress have been reported amongst persons who have come to the Bechuanaland Protectorate from the Union of South Africa for political reasons. The Bechuanaland Protectorate Government have not received any request for the establishment of farming co-operatives for such persons.
