As stated in the White Paper (Cmd. 3217) issued last year, the Abyssinian Government in March, 1928, agreed to pay the Government of Kenya 215,784 Maria Theresa dollars (approximately £21,578) as compensation for raids by Abyssinian subjects into Kenya territory. A first instalment of 150,000 dollars was paid in March, 1928, and a further instalment of 30,000 dollars in October, 1928.
