§ 20. Mr. Spence
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many refugees have crossed into Uganda from Sudan in the last six months; and what reports have been received from them regarding the state of affairs prevailing in the Sudan.
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
It is estimated that, since the outbreak of disturbances in August, 2,000 to 3,000 civilian refugees, 167 troops and six police have entered Uganda from the Sudan. Such information as the Uganda authorities have been able to obtain from the refugees has been transmitted to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, to whom I suggest all questions regarding the state of affairs in the Sudan should be addressed.
