HC Deb 06 May 1903 vol 121 c1504

To ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that huts have recently been built at Entebbe for a number of natives belonging to the Uganda Marine, and their families, in close proximity to the houses of Europeans; and whether, with the view to combating the spread of malaria, the Foreign Office will direct the removal of these huts to another site.

(Answered by Lord Cranborne.) The question of the situation of the native settlements at Entebbe is receiving the careful attention of the Commissioner and the principal medical officer, who are in the best position to judge what can be done, and have a free hand in the matter.
