I think it is fair that the African people of Northern Rhodesia
themselves should elect their own representatives.
Excerpt quoting Robinson during the debates from the Hansard report
of the African Representative Council, Seventh Session of the Third
Council, June, 1958.
The topics of the debates included electoral reform, the right
to hold public meetings, trade unionism,race discrimination, the
purchase of firearms, and several other subjects.
