§ Sir J. SANDEMAN ALLEN
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the telegraphic statement relating to the native question received from the Acting-Governor of Kenya was in reply to an inquiry or to a despatch; and whether the comprehensive statement expected from the Acting-Governor is in confirmation of the inquiry or whether it will be in answer to a subsequent despatch?
§ Dr. SHIELS
The telegraphic statement from the Acting-Governor of Kenya was sent in reply to a telegraphic inquiry from my Noble Friend. The comprehensive statement which the Acting-Governor will send by despatch was asked for by my Noble Friend in a further telegram dated 27th November following the reply which I gave on 26th November to a question by my hon. Friend the Member for Elland (Mr. C. Buxton).
