§ Mr. Biggs-Davison
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what steps are being taken to fill vacancies from within or without the Colonial Legal Service on the High Court Bench of Northern Rhodesia; and what proposals he has for the maintenance of continuity of that Bench.
§ Mr. Iain Macleod
I am considering the names of serving Legal and Judicial Officers for the one existing vacancy for a Judge, and the two prospective vacancies for Chief Justice and Judge. The Bench will continue to be reinforced as vacancies occur.
