§ Mr. J. Johnson
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware that a 16-year old boy sentenced in Mombasa to three years at an improved school has been sent to South Africa; and whether he will advise the Kenya Government to find some method of dealing with young offenders within the Colony.
§ Mr. J. Griffiths
I have received no report on this case. In addition to the probation system, there are in Kenya a reception centre and two approved schools for the treatment of non-European young offenders. The Kenya Government are alive to the need for extending the facilities within the Colony for the treatment of young offenders and have appointed a committee to review the matter.
