asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many churches have been damaged or destroyed in Northern Rhodesia since the disturbances began in July; and what was the denomination of each church.

During the first two months of the disturbances, when the majority of incidents occurred, thirty churches and chapels were destroyed. I am asking the Governor to provide later figures and information about the denominations affected and will write to the hon. Member when these are available.
