HC Deb 13 December 1922 vol 159 c2944W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware that the Indian inhabitants of Kenya intend to hold a congress in January, 1923; and whether, having regard to the unrest caused in the colony by the disputed question of the Indian franchise and its importance to the whole Empire, he can make any pronouncement on the subject?


I have had no previous information of the date of the next Indian Congress in Kenya. On the general question I regret that I can add nothing to the reply which I gave on the 5th of December to the question of the hon. and gallant Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme (Colonel Wedgwood).
