§ 19. Mr. DONNER
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies when it is proposed to issue the Order in Council safeguarding the White Highlands of Kenya, as was recommended in the report of the Carter Commission more than 18 months ago?
Mr. J. H. THOMAS
It is the intention of His Majesty's Government that an Order in Council shall be issued to define the boundaries of the Highlands. I am not yet in a position to say when it will be issued.
§ Mr. DONNER
Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether it will take much longer before the recommendations are carried out?
§ Mr. PALING
Is it intended to carry out the recommendations in their entirety; and is it not the fact that in the last 18 months difficulties have cropped up in this regard?
The recommendations are well known, but the policy of the Government is stated in the White Paper.
