HC Deb 30 March 1925 vol 182 cc916-7
11. Colonel WEDGWOOD

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has yet received any accurate account of the recent speech by the Acting Governor of Kenya on the coercion of native labour?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Mr. Ormsby-Gore)

A telegram has been sent to the Acting Governor asking for the fullest available report of the speech to be sent by mail. It cannot be expected for three or four weeks. The Acting Governor has reported by telegram that he made no suggestion or proposal for forced or compulsory native labour. He adds that the policy mentioned in my reply to the hon. Member for East Woolwich on the 23rd March is being strictly followed.
