HC Deb 06 March 1946 vol 420 c84W
26. Major Wilkes

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many Africans in Kenya are serving as African administrative assistants to district and provincial commissioners; and what steps are being taken to increase this number.

Mr. Creech Jones

There is provision in the 1946 estimates for 18 such appointments to be made. Since the arrangement is a new departure no steps are being taken at present to increase the number.
