22. Captain A. EVANS
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether Mr. Couper, formerly general manager of the Uganda Railway, has been superseded; and, if so, for what reasons?
§ Mr. ORMSBY-GORE
No, Sir. Mr. Couper applied for permission to retire on the pension for which he was qualified in respect of his 25 years' colonial service. His East African service amounted to 20 years, which, under the Regulations, renders an East African official eligible for voluntary retirement.
