asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he is aware that shops in Dar-Es-Salaam serve Africans separately from other customers at a hatch or window without their entering the shop; and if he will cause this practice to stop.

No. But there is a system followed in a few grocery shops whereby to avoid congestion domestic servants deliver written orders at a special service hatch and collect the parcels there later. I understand that this system is convenient for everybody and my right hon. Friend has no intention of trying to stop it.
