§ 11. Mr. SNELL
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware that the Governor of Kenya Colony- has stated that he is anxious to secure throughout the settled part of the Colony the appointment of unofficial resident magistrates from amongst the settlers; and whether, considering the difficulties involved in such a departure from the established administrative practice of the country, he will give the matter his consideration before any change is made?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for COLONIAL AFFAIRS (Mr. Ormsby-Gore)
My right hon. Friend has not received any proposals on this matter from the Governor. The hon. Member may rest assured that all relevant factors will be carefully considered if and when such proposals are submitted to him.
