§ 58. Mr. MALLALIEU
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether his attention has been drawn to the case in Kenya Colony of the dispute between two natives as to the ownership of a few eucalyptus trees, worth a few shillings; how many years was involved in hearing the case; how many courts heard it; what was the total cost of the legal proceedings; and what action he proposes to take to prevent a repetition of such prolonged and costly proceedings?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for DOMINION AFFAIRS (Mr. Malcolm MacDonald)
I have been asked to reply. I have no knowledge of this case; the Governor of Kenya is being asked for a report on the matter.
