§ 55. Mr. Hurd
asked the Minister of Food if, in view of the considerable revision which the Overseas Food Corporation is making in the programme for the Kongwa and Urambo centres of the Groundnut Scheme in Tanganyika, he will make a statement on the effects of this change of policy on the welfare of the European and native staff now employed there.
§ Mr. F. Willey
The Overseas Food Corporation has been working on its present programme of limited development in Kongwa and Urambo since January, 1949. The policy has not affected in any way the welfare of the European and native staff employed there.
§ Mr. Willey
Welfare is a responsibility of the management, and that is a matter for the day-to-day management of the Corporation.
§ Captain Crookshank
Could the hon. Gentleman say when the Minister of Food is likely to complete the investigation which he is making into the whole of the 380 groundnuts scheme and when he will report again to the House?
