§ 20. Mr. CHARLES BUXTON
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies if there are any provisions in the legislation now in force in Kenya Colony which infringe the principle laid down in the Secretary of State's Memorandum on Native Policy in East Africa, that persons of every race and religion have a right to equal treatment in accordance with their several needs?
§ Dr. SHIELS
Having regard to the instructions referred to in the foreword to the Memorandum, my Noble Friend assumes that the East African Governments will advise him in due course whether any amendments will be required in existing legislation. No communication on the subject has yet been received from any of the East African Governments.
§ Mr. BUXTON
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that the argument has been used in the Convention of Associations that no less than 31 amendments of existing legislation will be required?
§ Colonel WEDGWOOD
Has the Government of Northern Rhodesia had the same instructions in this matter as the other Governments?
