    Background: THE PRIME MINISTER OF SOUTHERN RHODESIA, MR. WINSTON FIELD, HAS REPORTED TO HIS CABINET FOLLOWING HIS RECENT VISIT TO LONDON. THERE HE MET THE BRITISH PRIME MINISTER, SIR ALEC DOUGLAS-HOME AND OTHER SENIOR BRITISH DIPLOMATS WITH A VIEW TO INDEPENDENCE FOR THE TERRITORY.

    TUESDAY'S MEETING OF THE CABINET WAS AN ALL-DAY AFFAIR AND THE DISCUSSIONS STAYED SECRET. MR. FIELD'S PARTY IS KNOWN TO BE DEEPLY DIVIDED OVER THE ISSUE OF INDEPENDENCE: THE EXTREME RIGHT-WING HAVING CALLED FOR THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE WITHOUT BRITAIN'S CONSENT. MR. IAN SMITH, MINISTER OF THE TREASURY, HAS STATED THAT A UNILATERAL DECLARATION WOULD BE NO MORE THAN A "THREE DAYS' WONDER" IN LONDON.
