Mr. MacCALLUM SCOTT
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has yet received any report as to the trial at the Nakuru High Court of the Honourable Galbraith Cole for shooting and killing a Native suspected of sheep stealing?
Yes, Sir, and I am at present in communication with the Governor by telegraph on the subject.
I think it hardly worth while to publish it as a Parliamentary Paper at present. I will consult with the hon. Gentleman later. Probably he will see that the Press reports which have reached this country are sufficient for all ordinary purposes.
Will the right hon. Gentleman consider the propriety of issuing Papers before the House reassembles in the autumn if this question is concluded before that time?
I should certainly issue any Papers that I consider necessary on the matter. I do not think the hon. Member will be dissatisfied with my action.
