HC Deb 25 October 1962 vol 664 c185W
Mr. Mason

asked the First Secretary of State whether any detailed decisions have yet been taken regarding the spending of the British loan to Nyasaland; and if he will now give an assurance that none of it will be used by the Nyasaland Government for a State-owned and controlled broadcasting station and national newspaper.

Mr. R. A. Butler

Certain projects have been approved for grants, but no detailed decisions have been reached on the use of loan funds. I cannot therefore commit myself as regards the two schemes mentioned at this stage.
