HC Deb 02 June 1954 vol 528 cc78-9W
60. Mr. Rankin

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how often, and by what methods, information on the race of visitors entering Tanganyika is conveyed to hotels and travel agencies; why such concerns are unable to estimate the different requirements of their clients from their normal commercial experience; and whether the Government of Tanganyika will make it clear to them that discrimination between clients on racial grounds alone is deprecated by the Government.

Mr. Lyttelton

This and other information about visitors to Tanganyika is published in quarterly statistical bulletins. I understand that the information is useful to the tourist trade, but I cannot say how far it would be inconvenienced by its absence. The Tanganyika Government's disapproval of racial discrimination has been repeatedly stated and is well known throughout the Territory.
