§ 19. Mr. D. GRENFELL
asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether the subject of the recent conversations between the Prime Minister of Southern Rhodesia and the High Commissioner for South Africa has been announced; and whether the conclusions on the matter are being published?
Mr. J. H. THOMAS
I am informed by Sir Herbert Stanley that during his return by the air route to South Africa the Prime Minister of Southern Rhodesia came to greet him at Bulawayo and that they had a few minutes' friendly and informal conversation at the aerodrome. I understand that the conversation was confined to some local administrative matters of common interest to Southern Rhodesia and the Bechuanaland Protectorate, and that no question of general policy was raised or made the subject of any conclusion.
