HC Deb 04 March 1936 vol 309 cc1367-8
25. Mr. LUNN

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he can assure the House that in any further cases of devolution of Governmental duties to local district councils in Kenya Colony he will require such bodies to raise and contribute pound for pound from local rates for any Government grant received by them?


I am not aware that further devolution is expected, but, if so, the question of requiring rates to be levied will receive consideration.
