HC Deb 20 March 1962 vol 656 cc35-6W
Mr. Wall

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many chiefs have been dismissed or have resigned since the last general election in Nyasaland; and how these figures compare with an equal period of time before that general election.

Mr. R. A. Butler

One chief has been dismissed and six have resigned since the general election last August. There were no dismissals or resignations in the equivalent period before the election.
