HC Deb 08 March 1933 vol 275 c1160

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, seeing that the Kenya Land Trust, under which natives occupy reserve areas, has been varied, it is his intention to permit in future British subjects of native origin to purchase from willing sellers land outside the reserve areas?


I cannot accept the implication in the earlier part of the question. The hon. Member is, moreover, mistaken in supposing that any restriction is maintained by the Government of Kenya on the purchase of agricultural land by natives, except in regard to the area known as the Highlands, which it is part of the, duty of the Morris Carter Commission to define.
