§ 63. Sir WALTER de FRECE
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies the nature of the proposals to rebuild Government House at Nairobi; and whether the poor housing of many Government 16 employés will be taken in hand before money is laid out on Government House itself?
§ Mr. AMERY
I have only just received the proposals for future building out of loan funds, and I have not yet been able to consider them. I may observe, however, that they contain provision of £586,430 for housing officials, both European and non-European, and that the proposals for new work at Government House include offices for the Governor and his staff, for the secretariat of the East African Governors' Conference, and a hall for the meetings of the Legislative Council of the Colony.
§ Sir R. HAMILTON
Is it not a fact that it is proposed to assign £80,000 to the rebuilding of Government House?
§ Colonel WEDGWOOD
Is it desirable that loan funds which were to be for productive works should be used for building an additional palace for the Governor?
