HC Deb 07 May 1952 vol 500 cc38-9W
85. Mr. Sorensen

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will secure information and publish in HANSARD in respect of differences of service, emoluments and amenities afforded to Africans, Indians and Europeans, respectively, in the Kenya medical and civil services.

Mr. Lyttelton

No. To comply with this request would involve publishing in HANSARD a list of many hundreds of posts in the Kenya Service. I am, however, sending the hon. Member a copy of the Kenya Estimates which contains many of the particulars in question. Broadly speaking, conditions of service are based on the recommendations of the Holmes Commission, except that, apart from an element of expatriation allowance in European emoluments, the salary scales and conditions of service attached to the numerous grades are assessed on the nature of the duties and not according to race.
