§ 6. Mr. Dodds-Parker
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what land at Kongwa, developed by the Overseas Food Corporation, is leased from the Tanganyika Government; what restrictions operate against its sub-lease by the Corporation to another party; and what applications have been received by the Tanganyika Government to sub-lease it in the event of the Corporation reducing its activities.
§ Mr. J. Griffiths
All land developed by the Corporation at Kongwa is leased from the Tanganyika Government, and may not be sub-let without the consent of that Government. No application has been received to sub-lease land at Kongwa in the event of the Corporation reducing its activities.
§ Mr. Dodds-Parker
Has the Tanganyika Government or any private interest been given a chance to make application to take over this area?
§ Mr. Griffiths
I do not know. The right of sub-letting is subject to the consent of the Tanganyika Government.

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how much land has been leased in the Tahora district of the Western Province of Tanganyika for agricultural purposes within the last 12 months; and what crops are likely to be planted on the land so leased.
