HC Deb 06 April 1949 vol 463 c186W
91. Mr. K. Robinson

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will undertake a statistical survey of the cost of living for the African population of Tanganyika to meet the criticism of the visiting mission of the Trusteeship Council that no information on this subject was available, except for Dar-es-Salaam.

Mr. Rees-Williams

Yes, when staff and accommodation can be provided. There is at present a shortage of trained statisticians.
