HC Deb 16 March 1962 vol 655 cc194-5W
Mr. G. M. Thomson

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what plans he has for proposing to Canada and the United States of America some form of association on their part with the economic development of Basutoland following his recent discussions with Motlotlehi Mashoeshoe II, the Paramount Chief of Basutoland.

Mr. Maudling

I was glad to learn that during his recent visit to those countries, the Paramount Chief was able to have discussions with the officials concerned.
