HC Deb 09 November 1961 vol 648 c86W
Mr. Deer

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many churches have been damaged or destroyed in Northern Rhodesia since the disturbances began in July; and what was the denomination of each church.

Mr. Maudling

During the first two months of the disturbances, when the majority of incidents occurred, thirty churches and chapels were destroyed. I am asking the Governor to provide later figures and information about the denominations affected and will write to the hon. Member when these are available.
