  • Description

    TWO OF RHODESIA'S TOP MINISTERS ARRIVED IN LONDON TODAY, HOT ON THE HEELS OF THE BRITISH HIGH COMMISSIONER TO RHODESIA, MR.JOHN JOHNSTON, WHO FLEW FROM SALISBURY YESTERDAY (TUESDAY).

    A RHODESIAN GOVERNMENT STATEMENT ANNOUNCED THAT THE MINISTER WOULD BE "CARRYING OUT AN EXERCISE INTO THE ACCOMMODATION, STAFFING AND REORGANISATION OF RHODESIA HOUSE, IN CO-OPERATION WITH HIGH COMMISSIONER, BRIGADIER ANDREW SKEEN, WHO HAS REQUESTED THIS."
    THEY ARE MR.WILLIAM HARPER, MINISTER FOR INTERNAL AFFAIRS AND THE PUBLIC SERVICE, AND MR.JOHN WRATHALL, FINANCE MINISTER.

    THE RHODESIAN GOVERNMENT STATEMENT ADDED THAT MR.WRATHALL WOULD TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY OF HAVING DISCUSSIONS WITH BRITISH FINANCIERS, BUT IT'S NOT KNOWN HOW LONG THE MINISTERS WILL STAY IN LONDON.

    IT'S CONSIDERED THAT MR.SMITH WANTS REPRESENTATIVES ON HAND IN LONDON WHILE THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT DISCUSSES WHAT ACTION IT SHOULD TAKE ON RHODESIA.

    THE TWO MAJOR DIFFERENCES BETWEEN BRITAIN AND HER CENTRAL AFRICAN TERRITORY ARE THE DEADLOCKED ISSUE OF INDEPENDENCE AND RHODESIA'S APPOINTMENT OF MR.HARRY REEDMAN AS ITS REPRESENTATIVE IN LISBON.
