HC Deb 22 February 1971 vol 812 c17W
77. Mr. Evelyn King

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will take stronger action in the case of the claim against the Zambian Government in respect of the lands previously owned in Zambia by Mr. F. Riley of Weymouth; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Godber

Her Majesty's Government have made formal representations to the Zambian Government concerning the Lands Acquisition Act, 1969. They have invited their attention to a number of cases of persons affected by the Act, including that of Mr. Riley, and have asked what steps the Zambian Government will take to compensate United Kingdom nationals who are, or may be, adversely affected by the Zambian Lands Acquisition Act, 1969. A reply is awaited.
