HC Deb 15 March 1923 vol 161 c1782
88. Brigadier-General COLVIN

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, having regard to the economical disturbance and unrest which would be created in Kenya Colony by the raising of the Indian question and the postponement of the elections, prompt steps can be taken to effect a settlement on the lines of Viscount -Milner's despatch of 21st May, 1920, and thus enable elections to proceed at once'.


As the House is aware, the Governor of Kenya, with representatives of various sections of the community, is about to visit England for the purpose of discussion with my Noble Friend the Secretary of State. It is not possible to take any action, such as that suggested by my hon. and gallant Friend, which would prejudge the result of the discussion.
