HC Deb 14 October 1908 vol 194 c300

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether a company calling itself the Uganda Company has acquired 5,000 acres of land in Uganda; and, if so, on what terms did they acquire this concession and what price did they pay, or what rent are they going to pay, and to whom.


Permission was given to the Uganda Company in the year 1905 to purchase 10,000 acres of land in Uganda in freehold. It appears from the latest returns that the Company have actually so far acquired 4,715 acres. The price paid to the Government of Uganda was Rupees 8266.
