§ Sir R. HAMILTON
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies the amount and value of the coffee grown by natives in Tanganyika during the last year for which completed figures are available?
§ Mr. AMERY
The total amount and value of coffee exported from the territory during 1925 are as follows:
cwts. £ Bukoba area 83,023 320,746 North-Eastern area (Tanga and Moshi districts) 37,136 160,160 Other districts 27 139
It is not possible to state the exact proportion of native-grown coffee included in the above. In the Bukoba district the coffee is almost entirely native-grown. In the North-Eastern area, on the other hand, native-grown coffee amounted to between 6 per cent. or 7 per cent. of the total production of the area in the year 1924–25. I have no more recent figures for this area.
