HC Deb 17 June 1963 vol 679 c4W
Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Lord Privy Seal what British subjects were among the Europeans and Africans attacked, arrested and maltreated recently in the Avenue des Flamboyants and elsewhere in Kolwezi; and whether he will make a statement about public order in Katanga.

Mr. Heath

Three Africans were killed and several others were wounded in incidents which took place in Kolwezi on the evening of 3rd June. One European was also killed. I have received no reports that any British subjects were involved. There have been no further incidents since that time and the general state of public order in the rest of Katanga is reported at present to be reasonably good.
