HC Deb 24 July 1929 vol 230 cc1334-5W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has received information regarding an appeal of the Indian community at Mombasa against the Kenya Government, concerning the order that residential plots put up to auction should be sold only to Europeans; that Indians and Africans should not reside in houses erected thereon except in the capacity of domestic servants of Europeans; whether he can state the effect of the judgment delivered on these two points; in particular, whether it has been recommended that the plots shall now be thrown open for purchase by members of all communities; if so, whether any action has been taken to secure the carrying out of this recommendation; and whether His Majesty's Government intend making any recommendation as a result of such judgment?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave on 19th July to the hon. and gallant Member for South Derbyshire (Major Pole).
