§ 35. Mr. D. GRENFELL
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he can state the number of licences for ginning cotton given during the last year in Uganda; whether the prices given to the native growers are depressed by any combination between ginners; and whether any licences have been given to Africans for ginning purposes?
§ Sir P. CUNLIFFE - LISTER
One hundred and twenty-three licences were issued in Uganda for the ginning of cotton in 1932. No such licences were issued to, or applied for by, Africans in that year, but two were issued to an African in 1931. No combination between ginners operated in the Protectorate during 1932.
