HC Deb 28 February 1927 vol 203 cc13-4
28. Mr. SNELL

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, in view of the proposal that all Crown lands in Kenya Colony made available since the demarcation of the native reserves should now be offered for settlement, he will make sure -that sufficient lands are reserved for future expansion of the native population?


I have not received from the Government of Kenya any proposal for proceeding immediately with the alienation of all available Crown lands outside the native reserves. It may be assumed that any proposals for the effective development of such lands will be framed with due regard to the interests of the African as well as those of the other sections of the community.
