§ 22. Colonel WEDGWOOD
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he can give the House any information as to the reasons for the arrest of Thuku, in Kenya Colony, and as to the circumstances which occurred in connection with that arrest?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Mr. Edward Wood)
I have no information beyond what has been published. The Governor has promised a despatch, and when I have received it I will consider what further announcement can be made.
§ Colonel WEDGWOOD
Will the hon. Gentleman consider the desirability of asking the Governor what it was Thuku was advocating which brought him into trouble with the police?
§ Lord H. CAVENDISH -BENTINCK
Will the hon. Gentleman consider as to appointing a Committee to inquire into the whole question of native unrest in Kenya?
§ Lord H. CAVENDISH-BENTINCK
Is not the hon. Gentleman aware that there is very serious unrest, and, moreover, well-grounded unrest, because no native can have a legal title to land in Kenya Colony?
