HC Deb 22 June 1955 vol 542 cc73-4W
83. Commander Maitland

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies into which of the main East African languages it is proposed to translate the full unabridged text of the East Africa Royal Commission Report.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

So far as I am aware, the question of translation of the Report has not yet been considered by the East African Governments. I imagine that it would be a formidable task to translate a Report of such length and technical complexity into even a few of the more widely used vernaculars in East Africa. But I am consulting the East African Governments and will write to the hon. Member when I have received and considered their views.
