HC Deb 01 April 1958 vol 585 c111W
73. Mr. Stonehouse

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what will be the number of Africans directly elected to the Legislative Council at the forthcoming elections in Uganda; and what arrangements are being made for the representation of the districts not participating in the direct elections.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

Excluding representatives from Buganda whose method of election is still under consideration, ten African Representative Members will be directly elected to the Legislative Council in the forthcoming elections. Apart from the District of Karamoja, which has no Representative Member, the representatives from districts not participating in direct elections will be indirectly elected as before.
