Alert me about debates like this

The Governments of Northern Rhodesia and Nyasaland have continued to give close attention to the improvement and extension of amenities for travelling natives. In Northern Rhodesia nine new rest camps were built in 1942 on the route from Barotseland to Livingstone, while camps have also been provided on the Great North Road for the use of motor transport passengers. The construction of further camps continued during 1943 and three rest camps were completed in the Kaonde-Lunda Province, four more were built on the Great East Road and two on the motor road linking the Barotse Province with the Lusaka area. I regret that I have no details of recent progress in Nyasaland.
