§ 51. Colonel PONSONBY
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies the amount now outstanding of the sums advanced from Imperial funds to Tanganyika territory since the acceptance by Great Britain of the Mandate; the amount of grants-in-aid non-recoverable; and the total of the grants made to the territory from the Colonial Development Fund?
Mr. J. H. THOMAS
The total amount now outstanding is £3,249,413, of which sum £408,109 was given in the form of free grants. In addition, assistance to the amount of £435,550 has been approved from the Colonial Development Fund, £367,400 being in the form of free grants.
These sums were advanced under the mandate for the development of these particular territories, and the figures I have given indicate how faithfully we have discharged our duty to the territories.
