HC Deb 03 March 1948 vol 448 c380
44. Mr. Baldwin

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether his attention has been called to a case at Thomsons Falls, Kenya, in which two Indians were found guilty of beating an African employee to death; why such treatment of this and other African labourers in the employment of these Indians which had persisted for some time was not detected by local authorities; and whether arrangements will be made for labour camps of road contractors to be subjected to regular inspection.

Mr. Rees-Williams

I am communicating with the Governor on the subject, and will write to the hon. Member as soon as I receive his reply.
