HC Deb 09 July 1957 vol 573 c187
42. Mr. Stonehouse

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what steps are being taken by the Government of Kenya to establish co-operative societies to assist in land development projects.

Mr. Profumo

The formation of co-operative societies to handle the growing output of cash crops in these areas is encouraged by the Kenya Government.

Mr. Stonehouse

Is it a fact that the establishment strength is not filled in the co-operative department in Kenya? What are the Kenya authorities doing to correct this position?

Mr. Profumo

I should not like to answer that question without notice. I can assure the hon. Member that the Kenya Government are giving every possible encouragement to this movement.
