asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies under what powers Mr. Kanyama Chiume, Member of the Nyasaland Legislative Council, was prohibited from entering Northern Rhodesia by the Governor of Northern Rhodesia; and whether this action had his prior consent.
Under Section 7 of the Northern Rhodesian Inter-Territorial Movement of Persons (Control) Ordinance. This Ordinance does not provide that my prior consent is necessary for making such an order.
Why was this order delivered by the Federal Administration? Has the Colonial Secretary taken any steps to assure himself that this is not another case of the Governor acting on false information?
No, Sir. This is a matter which, as I have said, does not require my prior consent. The Territorial Government used the facilities of the Federal Government for the serving of this order.
