HC Deb 11 July 1923 vol 166 cc1388-9W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the attention of that Department has been directed to the manner in which British traders are being hampered by the administration of the Tanganyika Territory; and whether any representations in favour of traders have been made to that administration with a view to creating greater facilities?


Criticism of the action of the Government of Tanganyika in connection with trade has been offered from time to time as in the case of other British dependencies, and particularly in connection with the Profits Tax and Trades Licensing Ordinances which have formed the subject of numerous questions and answers in this House during the last few months. Any representations made on the subject have received careful consideration.
