HC Deb 04 March 1953 vol 512 c365
48. Mrs. White

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what approaches have been made to the Red Cross, the Society of Friends or other similar bodies which have experience in relief work, to help in the present emergency in Kenya.

Mr. Lyttelton

The Director of Medical Services in Kenya is Chairman of the Joint Council of the St. John Ambulance and the Red Cross. The Council has set up a Committee to organise relief work in the present emergency in Kenya. I understand that the Society of Friends is not organised in Kenya to undertake work of this sort. The Red Cross is already assisting with the work of the three transit camps set up to help orderly movement of Kikuyu back to the reserves.
