§ 106. Sir J. Barlow
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many natives were removed from their holdings at Kongwa to allow the Groundnuts Scheme to proceed; and how these people were re-settled.
Mr. Creech Jones
A total of 594 African families were moved from the groundnuts area at Kongwa. They were resettled in vacant land just outside the area, water bore-holes were made for them and land was cleared for grazing. Cash compensation for disturbance was also paid.
