HC Deb 29 June 1925 vol 185 cc1990-1
28. Mr. SNELL

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, subsequent to March last, any further quota of the 4,000 labourers to be conscripted for railway construction in Kenya Colony has been called out; and, if so, how many have been recruited?


My information relates to the number of men actually working, which was 1,620 at the end of March, 2,493 at the end of April, and 1,587 at the end of May. On 10th June the Acting Governor reported that at that moment there was no need to compel labour for railway construction as voluntary labour was coming out satisfactorily.
