§ 29. Sir ROBERT HAMILTON
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether His Majesty has assented to the amendment of the Masters' and Servants' Ordinance, 1910, of Kenya, whereby a servant may be punished with rigorous imprisonment and/or fine up to 100s. for breach of a contract to work?
§ Mr. AMERY
The provision referred to is exactly repeated from the former Ordinance (now repealed) of 1918, except for the change from 50 rupees to 100s. consequent on the change of currency. The Acting Governor has been informed that His Majesty will not be advised to exercise his power of disallowance in respect of the new Ordinance.
§ Sir R. HAMILTON
Have any special circumstances arisen recently to cause this revision in the ordinance?
