HC Deb 06 November 1958 vol 594 c1109
51. Mr. Stonehouse

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what proposals have been made by the Uganda Government for a constitutional committee to investigate and discuss future constitutional developments in the protectorate.

The Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies (Mr. John Profumo)

The Governor will be making an announcement on this subject at the first meeting of the new Legislative Council and I have no statement to make at present.

Mr. Stonehouse

Will the Under-Secretary bear in mind the advisability of the constitutional committee consulting growing Buganda opinion which is not represented by either the Kabaka or the Buganda Lukiko?

Mr. Profumo

No, Sir; I am not prepared to anticipate the Governor's announcement.
