HC Deb 15 February 1926 vol 191 cc1508-9
18. Mr. SNELL

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has granted, or proposes to grant, to private individuals or companies the right to conduct the unloading and loading of goods at the new Government wharf at Kilindini Harbour, in Kenya; and will he state what kind of control is to be established?


A portion of the new deep-water wharf became available as a lighter wharf in September last, and a temporary arrangement was made allowing the private lighterage companies to use it in the same way as the previously existing facilities. As regards the future control at the deep-water wharf, I am awaiting the Report of a local Commission of Inquiry.
