HC Deb 17 April 1907 vol 172 cc975-6
SIR C. HILL (Shrewsbury)

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies, with reference to recent occurrences at Nairobi, whether in most, if not all, of the Crown Colonies and tropical dependencies of the Empire, white settlers are liable to be arrested by coloured policemen.


Yes, Sir.

*MR. CATHCART WASON (Orkney and Shetland)

In view of recent occurrences, will the hon. Gentleman take care that in enlisting white policemen for the British East African Protectorate every care will be exercised to obtain men of experience and character?


Certainly we will endeavour to get the best men possible.
