§ Mr. Attlee
May I ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he has any statement to make with regard to a deputation to Kenya?
§ The Secretary of State for the Colonies (Mr. Oliver Lyttelton)
As the House is aware, the right hon. Gentleman the Leader of the Opposition suggested some time ago that it would be helpful to a better understanding of the situation in Kenya if a party of Members from both sides of the House were to visit Kenya and see things for themselves. I put this suggestion to the Governor of Kenya who welcomed such a visit. It has now been arranged through the usual channels that the party will leave in the first week of January and will spend about two weeks in Kenya.
The Members visiting Kenya will be
The right hon. Gentleman the Member for Kelvingrove (Mr. Elliott), the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Rochester and Chatham (Mr. Bottomley), the hon. Member for Colchester (Mr. Alport), the hon. Member for Rugby (Mr. J. Johnson), the hon. Member for Derbyshire, West (Mr. E. Wakefield) and the hon. Member for Wigan (Mr. R. Williams).
