HC Deb 03 March 1927 vol 203 c588W

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he is aware that an official body in Kenya has recommended that, under the proposed compulsory Military Service Bill, soldiers shall be exempted from the oath of allegiance to the Crown; and whether he proposes to give his consent to such a Bill?


I presume the hon. Member refers to the recommendation made by a Select Committee, consisting of six unofficial and two official members of the Legislative Council. The inquiry in the latter part of the question is hypothetical, and I am unable to add anything to the replies which I gave on the 14th February.
