§ Mr. Eldon Griffiths
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if, in view of his responsibility for the safety of British citizens abroad, he has asked Mr. John Graham, as representative in Rhodesia of Her Majesty's Government, to inquire into the identity of those who murdered the British missionaries near Umtali; and whether Mr. Graham or any other British official has interviewed or sought interviews with those African eye witnesses of this massacre.
§ Mr. Rowlands
We have sought information about the incident from a number of sources, including Mr. Graham, who was in Salisbury at the time. We hope that the true facts will be established and to that end have offered assistance to the Elim Pentecostal Church to enable it to employ independent expert advisers at the inquest.
