HC Deb 25 February 1936 vol 309 cc284-5W

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has received any reports of the state of unrest on the Kenya-Abyssinia frontier; whether the settlement effected between the councils of the Boran and the Gurreh has improved the situation; and can he state when the last raid took place into British territory?


I have not received any reports which indicate that there is any unrest on the frontier. There has been nothing that could be called a raid into British territory since 1933. The meetings of the councils referred to by the hon. Member and the co-operation of local Abyssinian officials have, I understand, been useful in improving tribal relations.
