§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Mr. Amery)
According to the Agricultural Census Report for the year ending 31st July, 1928, the total area under European occupation in Kenya was 4,996,406 acres, and of this area 592,741 acres were under actual cultivation. The Report does not include figures showing what proportion of the area under European occupation can be classed as agricultural land, but the previous year's Report shows that about half the occupied land was being developed either by cultivation or stock raising.
§ Mr. PALING
Is it a fact that much of this land which is not at present being cultivated was formerly occupied by natives, who have been transferred from this land, in many cases against their will, to land of a less cultivable character?
