§ Mr. G. M. Thomson
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what approaches are being made to the United Nations on behalf of Tanganyika as a United Nations Trust Territory to seek development finance to offset the losses suffered through the fall in commodity prices.
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
The United Nations is not a source of development finance in the normal sense of the term, but it has supplied Tanganyika with a considerable amount of technical assistance. An application to the United Nations Special Fund is now under consideration.
