HC Deb 23 November 1949 vol 470 c356
40. Mr. Skinnard

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many Africans have been arrested as the result of the passing by the Kenya Legislature of the measure to control the voluntarily unemployed; and what action has been taken by the courts in these cases.

Mr. Rees-Williams

The Bill was passed by the Legislative Council on 19th August. I am not aware of any action taken under the Ordinance.
