HC Deb 28 March 1945 vol 409 c1404W
Mr. Harvey

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, in view of the plans for an increased white settlement in Tanganyika, it is proposed that other crops than coffee should be grown by the settlers; and is it anticipated that other crops than coffee can be profitably grown without the aid of a Government subsidy.

Colonel Stanley

One of the main objects of the investigation at present being carried out by the Land Settlement Board is to determine what crops can provide an economic basis for settlement in particular areas, and I am not in a position to make any statement on this matter pending the results of the Board's investigations.
