HC Deb 16 June 1920 vol 130 cc1276-7W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies if the Chamber of Commerce of Dar-es-Salaam has been putting on record the opinion that the development of Tanganyika territory is characterised by administrative lethargy, and is urging the establishment of civil courts and the creation, on strong and efficient lines, of a Land Department and a Mines Department?

Colonel L. WILSON

As stated on the 3rd of June, in reply to a question by the hon. Member for Wimbledon (Mr. Hood), the resolution referred to has been received. To the explanations then given I have nothing to add, except that the Dar-es-Salaam Chamber of Commerce does not appear to have appreciated the difficulties which confront the Administration at the present juncture.
