HC Deb 01 December 1958 vol 596 cc98-9W
Mrs. Butler

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what applications have been made by the Governments of Uganda, Kenya, Tanganyika, Jamaica, Grenada, and Trinidad for milk powder from the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund for the year 1959; and what is the estimated child population and the number of pounds of milk powder per child in each territory.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

One new application for 1959 has been received. This is for 180 tons of dried milk per annum for primary and pre-school children in the Bukedi district of Uganda, for two years in the first instance. In addition, two-year schemes including the year 1959 have already been approved for the three East African territories, as mentioned in my reply to the hon. Lady's Question on 30th July, and for Trinidad and Grenada—1,578,000 lb. and 616,200 lb. of dried milk powder respectively. The figures requested in the second part of the Question are not immediately available. I will write to the hon. Lady when I have them.
