HC Deb 29 June 1925 vol 185 c1994
30. Sir W. de FRECE

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether it is proposed to build the recommended new road from Nairobi to Victoria Falls; and whether the general programme of works in East Africa can be expedited so as to give employment here?


This is one of the recommendations of the East Africa Commission, on which it is for the present impossible for me to make any statement. I may remind my hon. Friend that for the finance of this and other schemes the Commission have recommended a course which will necessitate Parliamentary approval. With regard to the last part of the question, works already approved are being pressed on as quickly as possible and as far as financial considerations will allow.
