HC Deb 27 April 1961 vol 639 cc621-2
42. Mr. Grimond

asked the Prime Minister if he will visit Kenya in the near future.

The Prime Minister

I have no plans at present to visit Kenya, much as I should like to do so when opportunity occurs.

Mr. Grimond

Would not the formation of a new Government in Kenya offer such an opportunity? Is the Prime Minister aware that many of us have been receiving reports of white settlers in Kenya who are deeply perturbed because they feel they have been misled by Government statements in the past? Would it not be a good idea if he went and talked to them at first-hand and tried to allay their suspicions?

The Prime Minister

I have every confidence in the ability and experience of the Colonial Secretary.
