asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what quantity of fertilisers was imported into Kenya in 1928, 1938 and 1948, respectively; and if he is satisfied that this is now sufficient to meet all the local requirements.
The figures give the combined imports of Kenya and Uganda. The imports, in the three years mentioned, are 2,230, 2,580 and 8,250 tons. I have no reason to think that requirements are not being met, although there is still some difficulty over the supply of some kinds of fertiliser.
Do these figures meet the requirements of the Colonies?
