HC Deb 20 January 1959 vol 598 cc5-6
8. Mr. J. Johnson

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will give details of the plans announced by the specially elected members of the Kenya Legislative Council to build a multi-racial secondary school for boys between the ages of 12 and 18 years.

The Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies (Mr. Julian Amery)

I understand that these plans are still at an early stage and I am not in a position to give details.

Mr. Johnson

Would not both sides of the House welcome this step forward in multi-racial education? Can the Minister say whether the African Members—they are the African elected Members of the Legislative Council—have made any statement about this and what their feelings are about it?

Mr. Amery

I have no information on that point, but I would like to join in what the hon. Gentleman has said in welcoming this initiative.
