HC Deb 20 July 1961 vol 644 c1442
13. Mr. D. Foot

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what representations he or the Government of Kenya have received on behalf of Asian civil servants employed in Kenya regarding their future conditions and prospects of service, more particularly after independence; and what reply he has returned.

Mr. Iain Macleod

I have received a number of such representations, mainly from the Clerical and Allied Civil Servants' Association of Kenya, on which I am in close consultation with the Governor of Kenya and with the other East African Governors and Administrations.

Mr. Foot

Will the Minister bear in mind that many of these civil servants are not in fact expatriates and that Kenya is the only home which they have known? Will he carefully consider any further representations which he may receive from them?

Mr. Macleod

I have made it clear that if after local consultations they wished to make representations direct to me in London, I should receive them.
