§ Mr. Arnold
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what progress has recently been made towards establishing satisfactory levels of compensation for British settlers faced with nationalisation of their property in the Imbeya Region of Tanzania.
§ Mr. Rowlands
The Tanzanian authorities issued formal letters of intent in 379W September to buy out eight British-owned farms in the Mbozi district of the Mbeya Region. Arrangements for the purchase of these farms are the subject for discussion between the Tanzanian authorities and the owners. The British High Commission in Dar-es-Salaam is keeping my right hon. Friend's Department closely informed of developments.
