HC Deb 22 October 1953 vol 518 cc303-4W
Mr. Dugdale

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what prohibition there is against the holding of services by the African Orthodox Church in Kenya.

Mr. Lyttelton

Under Section 5 of the Societies Ordinance, 1952, every church body is required to apply for registration. Although the African (Greek) Orthodox Church was informed of this requirement, it has not yet applied. Until it has been registered or exempted from registration under the Ordinance, it cannot hold services.
