HC Deb 25 February 1924 vol 170 cc64-5W

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what is the total number of officials employed in the British mandated area of Tanganyika and of those employed by the German Government in 1913?


In the short time at the disposal of my Department I have only been able to ascertain the number of resident European officials as given by the German census of 1st January, 1913, and the British census of 24th April, 1921. These are: German, 737; British, 621. These include Europeans employed with the military forces, but it is not certain whether the German figure includes the European foremen and artisans employed by Government, who are included in the British figure.
