I am not sure which recommendation the hon. Member has in mind, hut I must make it clear that Natives of the Tanganyika Territory who enlist in the King's African Rifles already take the same oath of allegiance to His Majesty the King as is taken by Natives of the other East African Territories who enlist in the Force. I should add that a considerable number of soldiers serving in the King's African Rifles in Tanganyika Territory and elsewhere are recruited in the Nyasaland and Uganda Protectorates and these men are not British subjects.
