HC Deb 29 March 1922 vol 152 cc1334-5
67. Mr. DOYLE

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he has any reason to believe that the recent rioting and disturbances in Kenya were owing to local conditions or were the work of outside agencies, or whether they have been largely fomented by Indians affected by the prevailing unrest in the Empire?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Mr. Edward Wood)

I regret that I can add nothing to the answer given on Monday to the question of my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Bromley (Lieut.-Colonel James).


asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether any natives of Nairobi were shot down before any hostile act against the police was made; and whether at any time a single policeman, soldier, or white man was in any way injured by those who were demanding the release of Harry Thuku?


I have received no information from the Governor about this incident since the announcement sent to the Press on the 17th of March, and I must wait for the despatch which the Governor is sending.
