HC Deb 07 December 1961 vol 650 c1509
10. Mr. Dugdale

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what has been the cost to the United Kingdom Government of the recent famines in Kenya, and Tanganyika, respectively.

Mr. H. Fraser

As regards Tanganyika, I can only say that the request for a grant of £300,000 mentioned in my reply to the hon. Member for Swindon (Mr. F. Noel-Baker) is still under consideration.
