HC Deb 22 April 1929 vol 227 cc633-4W

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will make a statement regarding the situation created by the influx into Uganda of great numbers of famine-stricken natives from the Belgian mandated territory of Ruanda; whether the Government were taking any action in so far as Uganda is affected; and what degree of co-operation is there with the Belgian authorities in coping with the situation?


My right hon. Friend has not yet received any Report from the Governor. He is, however, asking by telegraph for an early Report by despatch on the situation.
