§ 18. Squadron-Leader Donner
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the terms of reference of the committee of experts on electrical development in East Africa include the examination of 2306 projects for development of electrical power in combination with irrigation, where possible.
§ Mr. George Hall
The immediate purpose of the inquiry is to investigate the potential demands for electric power and the resources, including water power, for its production. The possibility of combining the development of hydro-electric power with that of irrigation in suitable cases will not, of course, be overlooked.
§ Squadron-Leader Donner
Would it not be wise to insert such a provision in the terms of reference?
