HC Deb 21 May 1947 vol 437 cc261-2W
76. Mr. T. Reid

asked the Secretary of State for War if the residents of Juba-land, which formerly was part of Kenya, have expressed any wish as to their future nationality when the question of Italian colonies is being considered.

Mr. Bellenger

So far as I am aware, no wish has yet been expressed by the residents of Jubaland regarding their future nationality, but every opportunity is given them to voice their views through the medium of District and Zone Councils which have been established in Somalia.
