HC Deb 12 May 1924 vol 173 cc891-2
39. Lieut.-Colonel MEYLER

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware that segregation of Asiatics still prevails in the Government railways and steamers in Kenya Colony; that separate accommodation is reserved for persons of special races; and that waiting rooms, refreshment rooms, and lavatories are not open to all travellers irrespective of race; and whether steps will be taken to see that equal facilities are provided for travellers of whatever nationality who pay the same fare?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Mr. Thomas)

Separate accommodation is provided in some of the matters mentioned by the hon. and gallant Member, but in such cases every effort is being made to ensure that equal facilities are available for persons who pay the same fare.
