§ 15. Mr. J. Hynd
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies for what reason the railway administration in East Africa applied the agreement on wage claims and conditions of service to Tanganyika railway workers only and not to Kenya and Uganda; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Iain Macleod
After prolonged negotiations between the East African Railways and Harbours Administration and the three territorial railway unions, agreement was first reached with the Tanganyika Union on 30th April. A settlement on a similar basis has since been reached with the Uganda and Kenya Unions and is effective from 9th May.
