HC Deb 11 June 1947 vol 438 c109W
72. Mr. C. Smith

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies why there are no Africans upon the committee appointed to examine the incidence of taxation in Kenya.

Mr. Creech Jones

The Committee in question is to consist of persons chosen for their knowledge of financial and economic matters. There is no reason why an African should not have been appointed if he had the special qualifications and experience required.
