HC Deb 15 July 1953 vol 517 cc2030-1
4. Mr. Baldwin

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies in what territories in Eastern and Central Africa mobile news vans operate; how far experience shows that they serve a useful purpose; and what encouragement is to be given to their further use.

Mr. Lyttelton

Three mobile news vans are operating in Kenya, two in Uganda and two in Zanzibar. They are considered to be an effective means of disseminating information, particularly in areas not reached by broadcasting services, and the Kenya and Uganda Governments propose to use more.
