HC Deb 18 March 1940 vol 358 c1633
41. Mr. Lipson

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies, seeing that eight years have now elapsed since the recommendation of Lord Moyne was accepted for the creation of a Native Betterment Fund in Kenya Colony, what steps are being taken to create this betterment fund and the committee to be appointed to watch over its expenditure?

Mr. Boulton (Lord of the Treasury)

I have been asked to reply. My right hon. Friend would invite the hon. Member's attention to the statement on this subject made by his predecessor in reply to a Question by the hon. Member for Shipley (Mr. Creech Jones) on 2nd March, 1938, of which my right hon. Friend is sending him a copy.

Mr. Paling

Did the statement say whether anything had been done?

Mr. Boulton

That, I cannot say.
