§ MAJOR EVANS GORDON (Tower Hamlets, Stepney)
To ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will state when the Report on the Uganda Railway, made by Major Pringle, R.E., Board of Trade Railway Inspector, and mentioned in Africa, No. 12, of 1903, will be laid before Parliament; and, with reference to Africa, No. 7, 1903, if the Committee which supervised the construction of the railway, and was dissolved in September, 1903, submitted a final Report; and, if so, when it will be laid before Parliament.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Lyttelton.) As I stated in reply to the hon. Member for Orkney and Shetland on the 20th instant, the despatch referred to in the first paragraph of the Question will shortly be laid. A final Report on the history of the Uganda Railway was written by the chairman and managing member of the late Committee, and will also be laid before Parliament.
