HC Deb 18 March 1942 vol 378 c1504
35. Mr. Edmund Harvey

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is satisfied that the provisions of the recent measures for the conscription of African labour in Northern Rhodesia and in Kenya are in conformity with the obligations imposed by the International Labour Convention of Geneva?

Mr. Harold Macmillan

Yes, Sir.

Mr. Harvey

Have the Government considered, as an alternative, a war bonus for African labour in place of industrial conscription?

Mr. Macmillan

That is another question.
