HC Deb 22 April 1907 vol 172 c1409

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies what complaints have been received from residents in the East African Protectorate with reference to the Native police force; and have such complaints been the subject of specific inquiry by the Colonial Office.


As I informed the noble Lord in reply to his Question of Tuesday last, no specific complaints of misconduct by the police have reached the Secretary of State and accordingly no inquiry has been made. The Secretary of State has not, however, lost sight of the possibility of improving the force, and an Ordinance has recently been passed making better provision for its organisation and discipline.
