HC Deb 22 June 1925 vol 185 c1060

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the Government of Uganda has been approached by the League of Nations with a request for the provision of hospitality at the Entebbe Laboratory for a Commission to investigate sleeping sickness; and what, if any, has been the reply returned?


The appointment of such a Commission was recommended to the Council of the League by the International Conference on Sleeping Sickness which recently sat in London. No actual proposal has yet been received from the League, but I have ascertained that if such a proposal is made, the Government of Uganda will gladly co-operate by placing the laboratory at Entebbe at the disposal of the Commission.
