HC Deb 01 May 1935 vol 301 cc376-7W

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies the total figure of general immigration into Kenya for the year 1934, or for the year ending at the most recent convenient date, and compare it with the preceding year?


Owing to the need for economy, the Government of Kenya has discontinued publishing these statistics since 1932, and I regret, therefore, that the latest figures which I have are for that year. In 1932, 12,767 persons of all races entered Kenya at the Port of Mombasa, and 15,403 left. The figures for 1931 were—arrivals 16,006, departures 19,537. These figures relate only to the Port of Mombasa and are not, therefore, a completely accurate account of all arrivals and departures from Kenya.
