Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that at this stage a clear statement is needed in view of the wild statements which are being made by the Federal Prime Minister which are causing great concern in Northern Rhodesia and Nyasaland, among Europeans as well as the mass of the population? Will he make it clear that on no account will the two northern territories be swallowed up in the Federation until the majority of the people of those two territories agree to that?
