HC Deb 25 February 1919 vol 112 c1609W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware that natives of the country, however wealthy, clothed, or educated, are not allowed to travel first or second class on the Uganda Government Railway; whether this applies also to natives of India; whether any Order or Regulation to this effect has been approved by the Colonial Office or has made known to it and not disapproved; and, if so, what action he proposes to take in the matter?

Colonel AMERY

I understand that directions were given in 1914 for second-class accommodation to be reserved for Indian travellers on at least one train a week each way. On other points I have no information, but inquiry will be made of the Governor.
