East African Research


    THE “Report of the East African Guaranteed Loan Committee appointed by the Secretary of State for the Colonies” (Cmd. 2701, Aug. 1926, 47 pp., price gd.) directs attention to the urgent need for either a new organisation for the promotion of research in British Crown Colonies and Dependencies or for a more systematic use of existing agencies. The East African Commission, consisting of Messrs. Ormsby-Gore, Church, and Linfield, recommended a guaranteed loan of 16,000,000l. to aid the development of the British East African colonies and dependencies. This loan has been sanctioned, and applications for grants from it have been received from the East African Governments amounting to more than 16,000,000?., without including interest during construction. These applications have been referred to a Loan Committee consisting of Sir George Schuster, Mr. R. H. Jackson, and Brigadier-General F. D. Hammond.
