HC Deb 30 November 1925 vol 188 c1799
17. Mr. MORRIS

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will obtain information from the Kenya Government as to what lands have been disposed of by sale or otherwise in Kenya during the past 20 years, and the terms upon which this has been effected?

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

The information asked for is not in possession of the Colonial Office, and to require it from the Colony would entail very heavy additional work on the small staff of the Lands Department, involving the detailed cataloguing of several thousands of transactions, and unless there is a general demand for such a compilation, I should not feel justified in asking for such a return.
