HC Deb 26 June 1958 vol 590 c36W
Mr. Stonehouse

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what are the present rent controls in townships in Uganda; and what is the policy of the Uganda Government with regard to decontrol.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

In townships in Uganda rent control now applies only to residential accommodation and to business premises contained in one lease with living quarters, and does not in any case apply to accommodation and premises let after 1st January, 1957.

The Uganda Government's policy is eventually to achieve complete decontrol. Business premises contained on one lease with living quarters will be decontrolled on 1st January, 1959, and a committee of the Legislative Council is about to examine the position regarding purely residential premises.
