§ 31. Mr. Riley
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies the number of Africans who have joined the Fighting Forces in Kenya, Tanganyika, Northern Rhodesia and Uganda, respectively; and whether he has under consideration any schemes for making suitable provision for these African volunteers when war terminates.
§ Colonel Stanley
It would not be in the public interest to give detailed figures but the numbers represent a high proportion of the able-bodied male population of these territories and reflects the greatest credit on their people. Schemes for development which will take fully into account the special needs of Africans reverting to civilian status in these territories on demobilisation are under active consideration by all the Colonial Governments concerned.
