HC Deb 27 September 1944 vol 403 c227
32. Mr. Riley

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will make a statement as to the nature of the development scheme in Uganda estimated to cost approximately £2,000,000.

Colonel Stanley

The scheme comprises a comprehensive six-year programme of development under the headings of Education, Health, Natural Resources, Social Welfare, Communications and Research at a cost of approximately £5,000,000. Of this, application will be made for £2,300,000 under the Colonial Development and Welfare Act. A copy of the scheme is being placed in the Library.

Mr. Riley

May I ask how the policy is going to be carried out? Is it by a special committee or by the Colonial Government?

Colonel Stanley

No, Sir. The Colonial Government will, of course, carry out the scheme.
