HC Deb 11 May 1949 vol 464 cc1839-40
25. Mr. Marlowe

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware that members of the Kitosh tribe are actively engaged in arson in the Kenya highlands; what steps are being taken to protect the property of white settlers; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Creech Jones

I am consulting the Governor on the subject and will communicate with the hon. Member when his reply is received.

Mr. Marlowe

When the right hon. Gentleman is communicating with the Governor will he draw attention to the fact that the white residents of the Kenya highlands are not getting sufficient attention from Nairobi, and would he ensure that the Governor would give this matter urgent attention?

Mr. Creech Jones

The observations of the hon. and learned Gentleman will be conveyed to the Governor.
