HC Deb 27 June 1957 vol 572 c392
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sanctioned by the Legislative Council in March was debated by the Council on 6th June, but, by consent, the Motion was withdrawn.
