HC Deb 07 July 1948 vol 453 cc32-3W
61. Mr. Rankin

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what reports have so far been presented by the Indian and Arab Settlement Board in Kenya on the economic position of Indian farmers already established in Kenya; and what information he has received on the standard of farming and conservation of natural resources.

Mr. Rees-Williams

My right hon. Friend regrets that he has no report available from the Indian and Arab Settlement Board in Kenya. It will be recalled that on 30th June in reply to a Question put by the hon. Member for East Harrow (Mr. Skinnard), it was stated that a report had been received about the settlement of Arabs in the coastal belt. This was a report submitted by the Coast Titles and Arab Settlement Board, which is a different organisation from that now under reference.
