HC Deb 05 December 1963 vol 685 c217W
Mr. H. Wilson

asked the Prime Minister what proposals he has for the presentation of gifts by the Government and by this House to mark the attainment of independence by Zanzibar on 10th December.

The Prime Minister

The whole House will, I feel sure, wish to send warm congratulations to Zanzibar on her forthcoming independence with best wishes for the happiness and prosperity of her people. Her Majesty's Government will propose that the House should offer to the Zanzibar National Assembly the gift of a bookcase containing constitutional and parliamentary works of reference. Her Majesty's Government for their part have decided to offer a gift of a silver table center piece to the Government of Zanzibar to commemorate Zanzibar's attainment of independence.
