asked the Under-Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs what measure of success has been attained in the resettlement schemes so far carried out in Swaziland; and what proportion of the landless population of Swaziland benefited from them.

Eighty-one per cent. of the landless population will benefit from the scheme, which provides eventually for the settlement of 4,400 families. It is hoped that all the families will be permanently settled by 1956.
