26. Mr. Creech Jones
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether his attention has been drawn to the attempt by the local authorities to close the independent native school at Mukui, in the Kiambu district of Kenya; why such request was not officially notified in writing; why prosecutions of the principal and school committee have taken place; what are the reasons for the closing of the school; and why the reasons were not disclosed to the school authorities at the time the demand for closing the school was made?
§ Mr. Ormsby-Gore
I have received no information regarding the closing of the school in question, but will make inquiries.
