HC Deb 27 November 1958 vol 596 cc537-8
29. Mrs. Castle

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the staff side of the Central Whitley Council of Kenya has yet put forward its proposals with regard to the allocation of Government quarters on a non-racial basis; and when these proposals will be considered.

Mr. Profumo

Not yet, Sir. The next full meeting of the Whitley Council will be in January and it is hoped that the staff side will have prepared its proposals for discussion then.

Mrs. Castle

Will the hon. Member tell me what proportion of all African civil servants have meanwhile been allocated quarters on a European basis?

Mr. Profumo

I am afraid that I cannot give the figures without notice. Perhaps the hon. Lady will put the Question on the Order Paper.
