HC Deb 11 June 1959 vol 606 cc1150-1
23. Mr. Stonehouse

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if ex-Senior Chief Mbiyu Koinange will now be released from restrictions in Kenya to enable him to join his sons in Great Britain.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

I have discussed this with the Governor, who would be ready to agree that in this exceptional case ex-Senior Chief Koinange, who is a very old man, might be permitted to join his sons in this country if he wished and if the medical authorities considered that at his advanced age he could safely do so.

Mr. Stonehouse

May I thank the Colonial Secretary for that concession? May I hope that this will bring to an end the vindictive treatment that this old man has received.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

I could not allow the charge of vindictive treatment to pass unnoticed. I have nothing to add to the Answer which I have given.
