HC Deb 23 May 1963 vol 678 c58W
Mrs. Castle

asked the First Secretary of State what progress has been made in the removal of the colour bar in Northern Rhodesia.

Mr. R. A. Butler

The Government of Northern Rhodesia intends to repeal all legislation within this field of competence which is unfairly discriminatory. Since 1960 racial discrimination in cafes, restaurants and cinemas has been unlawful. There are Race Relations Committees in all the main centres of population to combat discrimination and to advise the Government on further measures. There has been considerable improvement in social attitudes in the last few years.
