HC Deb 05 May 1937 vol 323 c1143
26. Mr. Bonfield

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware of the several alterations to the draft Bill on Income Tax in Kenya recommended by the Select Committee; and whether, in view of the substantial nature of the changes recommended and the heavy administrative labour involved, he will make representations to the Government of Kenya on the matter?

Mr. Ormsby-Gore

The first draft Bill was published in October and a revised Bill was drafted in January. The revised draft was introduced into Council in March and referred to a Select Committee of Council which, I am given to understand, made some alterations and presented a unanimous report to Council. The Bill was passed on 19th April. I have not yet received copies of the report of the Select Committee or of the Ordinance as now enacted.
