HC Deb 29 October 1952 vol 505 c211W
58. Mr. F. Harris

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if, during the present emergency, the Kenya Government will take steps to stop potential agitators from entering the Colony.

Mr. J. Foster

My right hon. Friend is confident that the Government of Kenya can be relied upon to exercise wisely their powers under the law to withhold permission for entry to the Colony.

59. Mr. Grimond

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will recommend the appointment of a Royal Commission or consider some other form of inquiry to report on the disturbances in Kenya.

Mr. J. Foster

The Royal Commission on Land and Population in East Africa, the appointment of which has already been announced, will consider a very wide range of the basic problems affecting Kenya and the other East African territories. In view of this my right hon. Friend does not consider that a separate inquiry into the disturbances in Kenya would serve any useful purpose.
