asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is satisfied with the working of the welfare scheme in the Tanganyika sisal industry whereby only £2 10s. of the increase of £18 10s. per ton in the price of sisal is to be devoted to welfare measures in the industry, and what is to be the future of this scheme.
Yes. The Acting Governor is being consulted regarding the continuation of the scheme and my Hon. Friend will be informed of the result of this consultation.
