HC Deb 28 March 1945 vol 409 c1404W
Mr. Harvey

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether any steps are being taken to relieve the pressure of population in overcrowded districts of Tanganyika by encouraging the settlement of Africans in unpopulated but fertile land, and by provision of transport and improved water supplies for the under-populated districts.

Colonel Stanley

The Tanganyika Government's post-war development proposals include a scheme for a redistribution of population in certain areas of the Lake Province. The programme also provides for the improvement of communications generally and the development of water supplies.
