HC Deb 22 February 1968 vol 759 c177W
68. Miss Joan Lestor

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Affairs what representations he has had, and what action the Government propose to take, in respect of the arrest in Rhodesia, and the deportation to South Africa by the Rhodesian authorities of Desmond Francis.

Mr. George Thomas

The British High Commissioner in Lusaka has received a letter from Mrs. Francis and a Note from the Zambian Government inquiring about Mr. Francis, and has answered both these communications. Otherwise, I have nothing to add to the reply that I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Portsmouth, West (Mr. Judd), on 21st February.—[Vol. 759, c. 149.]
