HC Deb 25 October 1950 vol 478 cc2769-70
5. Mr. Henry Brooke

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware of the action of the Kenya European Settlement Board in inflicting heavy financial loss on a British ex-Service man by letting farm L.O. 5391 to him in November, 1947, without disclosing to him that the arable land had been overcropped and that the Kenya Department of Agriculture, in March, 1947, had imposed a no-cropping order on an important part of it; and whether, in the interests of future settlement policy, he will have inquiries made.

Mr. J. Griffiths

I have asked the Governor of Kenya to make inquiries into this case, and will write to the hon. Member as soon as his report is received.
