Abstract

The regional control of bush burning in British Tropical Africa is deemed to be ineffective, except in Nyasaland, because it is based on preventive legislation, and there has been no staff to enforce it. It is considered that control should be placed in the hands of Forest Departments, who alone have the experience and the staff, and that, except in the Glossina morsitans belt of East Africa, it should take the form of organized early burning sanctioned by positive legislation.
