HC Deb 07 July 1953 vol 517 c84W
Mr. Fenner Brockway

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what type of labour is to be employed in the construction of the airport at Embakasi in Kenya.

Mr. Lyttelton

As work must be found for convicts, whose number has almost doubled in the last year, the construction of this airport has been advanced by the Kenya Government and for a time a proportion of the labour employed on it will consist of convicts. The remainder will be ordinary labour at current wage rates.
