HC Deb 25 May 1938 vol 336 cc1195-6
37. Mr. McEntee

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what steps are being taken to carry out the recommendations of the committee appointed to consider the labour situation in Uganda?

Mr. M. MacDonald

The Governor has not yet communicated to me the recommendations of the Committee to which the hon. Member refers. He intimated recently that he expected to receive their final report about the end of April: and he will no doubt address me on the subject when he has had an opportunity to consider it.

Mr. McEntee

Is it not known to the right hon. Gentleman that the report has been published and is available to Members through the League of Nations?

Mr. MacDonald

I think that the hon. Member must be referring to some other inquiry and some other report. The position with regard to the latest inquiry in Uganda is as stated in the answer. The Governor indicated that he expected the report at the end of April. It has not reached me yet, and I have not seen it in any form.
