§ Mrs. L. Jeger
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he is now able to give a correct up-to-date statement of the amount of money which the Kabaka of Buganda has accepted from public funds.
§ Mr. J. Foster
My right hon. Friend regrets that in answering the hon. Member's Question on 24th February he inadvertently misled the House. By that date the Kabaka had received £1,833 6s. 8d. from the Uganda Government, and not £1,333 6s. 8d. as was stated. Since then a further instalment of the allowance has been paid and the total sum which the Kabaka has received, excluding the payment made on account of his hotel bills, now amounts to £2,500.
