My right hon. Friend has seen in the Press an article containing what is described as a translation of a circular in the Lutoro language regarding land in Toro, but he has not received from Uganda a copy or translation of any such circular; steps will be taken to ascertain the position from the Governor. A Committee was appointed in Uganda in 1926 to inquire into grievances of the Mukama and people of Toro connected mainly with certain difficult land questions, and if a circular has been issued with the authority of the Protectorate Government, it will presumably have been based upon recommendations of that Committee.
