§ 86. Mr. J. Johnson
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many local branches of the Tanganyika African National Union have been banned; and how many of these are in constituencies where elections for the Legislative Council will be held this year.
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
Altogether 12 applications to open a branch of the Tanganyika African National Union have been refused and 4 other branches previously registered have been declared unlawful. Orders in respect of two of these have now been rescinded and it is open to them to apply for registration again. Two branches still declared unlawful and two refused registration are in constituencies where elections are to be held in September.
