§ Mr. Peter Bruinvels
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he plans to meet the President of Uganda to discuss compensation for Asians now resident in the United Kingdom.
§ Mr. Renton
We are regularly in touch with the Uganda Government about these claims. Our High Commissioner in Kampala last discussed them with the responsible Uganda Minister on 9 January. Some progress has been made. The Uganda Government have told us that over 50 claims have been settled. Our High Commissioner expressed our strong concern that outstanding claims should be dealt with as quickly as possible.
