HC Deb 05 July 1926 vol 197 c1633W

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what body is responsible for the administration of the office in Cockspur 'Street bearing the name of His Majesty's Eastern African Dependencies; who is responsible for the policy advocated or urged by that office and what control, if any, he exercises over its administration?


The Eastern African Trade and Information Office is responsible to the various East African Governments by which its expenses are borne. I have, therefore, ultimate control over the administration of the office, the business of which is to supply information and not to advocate or urge any policy.
