HC Deb 21 March 1963 vol 674 cc93-4W
82. Mr. Wall

asked the First Secretary of State what representations have been made by the Litunga regarding the future relationship between Barotseland and Northern Rhodesia, and Barotseland and the United Kingdom; and what undertakings have been given to the Litunga.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I met the Litunga in Lusaka on 25th January and was given a memorandum in which the Barotse Native Government expressed their wish that Barotseland should become a separate protectorate. I undertook to study the question of Barotseland's future and in due course have further discussions with the Litunga. I am therefore not yet in a position to make a statement.
