asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he is now able to give a correct up-to-date statement of the amount of money which the Kabaka of Buganda has accepted from public funds.

My right hon. Friend regrets that in answering the hon. Member's Question on 24th February he inadvertently misled the House. By that date the Kabaka had received £1,833 6s. 8d. from the Uganda Government, and not £1,333 6s. 8d. as was stated. Since then a further instalment of the allowance has been paid and the total sum which the Kabaka has received, excluding the payment made on account of his hotel bills, now amounts to £2,500.
