HC Deb 16 November 1938 vol 341 c857
14. Mr. Hall Caine

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies the number of German and Austrian girls who have been admitted into Kenya and Tanganyika in order to take up employment during the last two years; and why, if these opportunities for employment exist, adequate information is not issued in this country, so as to interest British girls?

Mr. M. MacDonald

I am not in possession of the figures, but I will inquire of the Governors of the Territories concerned. Information as to opportunities for employment in these territories is readily obtainable from the East African Dependencies Trade and Information Office in London. Moreover, this Office is in close touch with the Society of Over-sea Settlement for British Women in London, and they, in turn, are represented in East Africa by the East African Women's League.
