HC Deb 08 July 1936 vol 314 c1182
32. Major MILNER

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is willing, in order to meet the objections of the Indian community in Kenya and of public opinion in India, to leave the question of the occupation of land in the Kenya highlands to be dealt with as a matter of administrative practice as hitherto?


There is not and never has been any intention of varying the procedure hitherto followed, by which this question is dealt with as a matter of administrative practice.


Is it not a fact that what has hitherto been merely an administrative practice has now become a legal obligation?


No. As I explained very fully in answer to questions last week and the week before, that is a complete misapprehension.
