§ 70. Sir J. Lucas
asked the Lord Privy Seal if he will propose in the United Nations that a plebiscite should be held in Katanga in order to ascertain the political desires of the people of that people in that territory.12W
§ Mr. Heath
The Katanga is a province of the Republic of the Congo and there is no provision under existing legislation for holding such a plebiscite. Nor is it for the United Nations who have no authority to impose a settlement on the Congo and are not responsible for the present Katanga administration, to set such a procedure in motion.
