    Background: The Buganda Lukkiko met at the Bulange, Mengo, Kampala, on Monday April 20th to receive the reply to their recent request to H M the Queen that the Buganda Agreement should be terminated. Terms of the reply are as in enclosed cuttings. Members described the reply as wholly unsatisfactory and improper insofar as the petition was addressed to the Queen whereas the reply was from the Colonial Secretary. The reply was addressed to the Kabaka whose permission had to be obtained for copies to be circulated.

    Mr Kintu said that he could not accept the view that the reply was wholly unsatisfactory for it opened the way to discussions which might well modify the 1955 Buganda Agreement.

    Lukkiko then adjourned until Wednesday when the reply would be discussed after members had time to consider it.

    Visuals not particularly exciting but shots of the Katikkiro should be of interest. Chamber rather dark and contrast accordingly rather too low. Hope there is enough to cover the item.
