§ 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.]
