  • Description

    British judge Lord Pearce announced detailed plans on Wednesday (12 January) in Salisbury for a nationwide test of opinion on the Rhodesian independence terms, saying "Our aim and ambition is to interpret the true voice of Rhodesia".

    He told a news conference that the British commission, which had flown in the day before to carry out a test of the acceptability of the constitutional proposals, had already begun the first stage of the big task -- that of seeking written statements from people and organisations who wished to have their opinions heard.

    Lord Pearce forcefully reaffirmed his commission's complete impartiality of the independence settlement issue. The great bulk of white opinion is clearly in favour of the terms, and although black reaction has so far been largely against the terms, most political sources say this does not necessarily represent all African feeling.
