HC Deb 29 March 1927 vol 204 c1053

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the 21 residential plots in the lighthouse area of Mombasa, which were advertised for sale at public auction early last year on terms by which only non-Asiatics would be permitted to bid or to live in buildings erected thereon, have yet been sold; and, if not, whether, in view of the fact that a definite promise was embodied in the Government White Paper of 1923 that they would no longer approve of a policy of segregation of Asiatics in the Kenya townships, the Government will reconsider the matter with a view to withdrawal of their consent to the above sale?
