HC Deb 26 April 1955 vol 540 cc763-4
55. Mr. Fenner Brockway

asked the Secretary of State for War if an agreement has now been reached regarding the negotiations with Asian civilian staff employed in the War Department in Kenya regarding the conditions of service.

Mr. Head

As my hon. Friend explained in his recent letter to the hon. Member, agreement on a scheme of establishment has now been reached. Certain points of detail remain to be settled.

Mr. Brockway

Whilst there has been some disappointment at the long delay in reaching the end of these negotiations, is the right hon. Gentleman aware that this result will be appreciated by the Asian community in Kenya?
