HC Deb 05 May 1964 vol 694 c148W
48. Mr. D. Foot

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations and the Colonies what communications have been received by Her Majesty's Government from the Government of Southern Rhodesia regarding proposed changes in the Southern Rhodesian Constitution; what reply has been sent; and whether he will give an assurance that no such changes will be agreed by Her Majesty's Government until the matter has first been debated in this House.

Mr. Sandys

I understand that this Question refers to the motion of the Southern Rhodesia legislature seeking to petition the Queen to remove the British Government's powers under Section 111 of the Southern Rhodesia Constitution. I have nothing to add to what I told the House on 28th April.
