    Background: AN ORGANISATION KNOW AS THE RHODESIAN CONSTITUTIONAL ASSOCIATION HAS BEEN STUDYING THE RESULTS OF A CANVAS AMONG VOTERS IN RHODESIA TO SEE HOW MUCH SUPPORT THERE IS FOR THE 'TIGER' CONSTITUTIONAL PROPOSALS DISCUSSED BY THE BRITISH PRIME MINISTER, MR. WILSON, AND THE LEADER OF THE ILLEGAL RHODESIAN REGIME, MR. IAN SMITH, IN 1966.

    THE ASSOCIATION DISTRIBUTED 6,000 QUESTIONNAIRES TO ELECTORS IN THREE DISTRICTS OF RHODESIA. THE CHAIRMAN OF THE ASSOCIATION SAID THE RETURNS OF THE CANVAS SHOWED MOST PEOPLE FAVOURED A NEGOTIATED SETTLEMENT TO THE IMPASSE ON THE RHODESIAN SITUATION.

    THE CHAIRMAN OF THE R.C.A., MR. ROBERT WILLIAMS, HAS SAID THAT DEFENDING UPON THE CANVAS RESULT A NEW POLITICAL PARTY MIGHT BE FORMED TO OPPOSE THE ILLEGAL REGIME CONSISTING OF RHODESIAN FRONT PARTY MEMBERS.

    THE RHODESIAN FRONT HAS ATTACKED THE QUESTIONNAIRE CANVAS AS IRRESPONSIBLE, SAYING IT COULD UNDERMINE RHODESIA'S POSITION AND GIVE MR. WILSON AN ADVANTAGE. THE R.C.A. SAID SUCH ACCUSATIONS WERE UNWARRANTED.
