§ 4. Mr. Stonehouse
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what consultations the Uganda Government held with farmers' organisations before deciding to take £7,500,000 out of the Cotton and Coffee Price Assistance Funds as a grant to Government funds.
§ Mr. Profumo
There has been no such decision. A proposal to convert to a grant an interest-free loan of £7½ million from the Price Assistance Funds sanctioned by the Legislative Council in March was debated by the Council on 6th June, but, by consent, the Motion was withdrawn.
