HC Deb 08 December 1927 vol 211 c1580W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware that the Government of Kenya proposes to remove the Atharaka Natives from a district comprising some 500 square miles on the east of the Garba Tula road in the Meru district, and that this land was included in the provisional boundaries of the Meru reserve as gazetted in October, 1925; what object the Kenya Government has in view in proposing to evict these natives; and whether, if there is no valid reason for such eviction, he will use his powers to obtain the restoration of this land to the Meru reserve and to the use of its present occupants?


I have no information on this subject, and will make inquiries of the Governor.
