HC Deb 06 November 1961 vol 648 c22W
60. Mr. G. Thomas

asked the Lord Privy Seal what recent report he has received from the Consul General at Luanda, concerning events in Angola.

Mr. Heath

The most recent reports that I have received indicate that the Portuguese appear to have re-established themselves in many European settlements in the disturbed areas of Northern Angola over which they had previously lost control. The rainy season has now started and this will make military operations difficult.
