§ 72. Mr. STEPHEN
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies if he is aware that the Kenya Government has made rules prohibiting branches of the Kikuyu Central Association from 39 raising money from its members; and if he can state under what ordinance these rules were made?
§ Dr. SHIELS
Orders were issued through the native authorities in Kenya early in the year to regulate the collection of money among natives in the Reserves. These orders were made under the Native Authority Ordinance. There is no intention to prevent the collection of money from natives for the Kikuyu Central Association or for any other purpose which is not unlawful; but it is considered desirable that provision should be made to ensure the giving of written receipts for money collected and the keeping and inspection of accounts of such money, and this will be effected by means of the orders.
