§ 34. Sir G. Fox
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what are the more urgent needs in the Western Provinces of Tanganyika on which public money is being expended in preference to road communications.
Mr. Creech Jones
The maintenance of social and welfare services for the local population, including education and public health services, are considered to be of great urgency in these areas. Determination of priorities in these matters is primarily for the Tanganyika Government and Legislative Council.
