asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the observations of the Governor of Northern Rhodesia have now been received in respect of the telegram sent to the Secretary of State for the Colonies on 30th September last by the unofficial members of the legislative council of Northern Rhodesia, on the subject of the amalgamation of the two Rhodesias; if so, whether he will inform the House of the purport of those observations; and whether a reply has now been sent, or is about to be sent, to the unofficial members, and in what terms?

I would refer the hon. Member to the report of my speech on the Motion for Adjournment last night.

Is it intended to publish these observations, and will the hon. Gentleman recollect that last night he quoted a document which he promised to lay on the Table?

I claimed the right that the document from which he quoted should be published.
