Mr. G. M. Thomson

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will publish the report of the Constitutional Commission of the Basutoland National Council as a White Paper; and what arrangements are being made for discussions with Her Majesty's Government of the Commission's constitutional proposals.

Mr. Sandys

I would refer the hon. Gentleman to the replies I gave to the right hon. Member for Middles rough. East (Mr. Bottomley) on the 19th November and to my hon. Friend the Member for Haltemprice (Mr. Wall) on the 21st November. Her Majesty's Government have not yet been asked to discuss the proposals which were addressed to the Paramount Chief for the consideration of the Basutoland National Council.
