HC Deb 15 June 1955 vol 542 cc9-10W
49. Mr. Hale

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what reasons now prevent the return of the Kabaka to Buganda.

Mr. Hopkinson

The return of Kabaka Mutesa II to Buganda is dependent on the acceptance and putting into force of new constitutional arrangements for Buganda. My right hon. Friend is at present engaged in discussions with the Lukiko delegations, which he hopes will result in agreement on this matter. I would prefer to make no further statement until these discussions are complete.
