HC Deb 01 July 1926 vol 197 cc1324-5

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will arrange that, in connection with the office in Cockspur Street bearing the name of His Majesty's Eastern African Dependencies, some distinction should be drawn between territories belonging to the Crown and the territory of Tanganyika, which is held under mandate from the League of Nations?


The term "dependency" was chosen as conveniently and accurately covering the Colony of Kenya, the five Protectorates, and the Mandated Territory of Tanganyika, and I see no reason for changing the title of the office.
