HC Deb 27 February 1905 vol 141 c1300

To ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware that the native population of Uganda has declined from 5,000,000 in 1878 to under 2,000,000; and whether he has any official information showing to what extent this loss of life has been the outcome of feuds.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Lyttelton.) There are no statistics at the disposal of His Majesty's Government to prove to what extent the native population of Uganda has increased or decreased since 1878.
