HC Deb 09 March 1954 vol 524 c137W
77. Mr. F. Harris

asked the Secretary of State for War how far the military in Kenya are encouraged to purchase such supplies as they may need which can be produced by local secondary industries, subject to suitability both of quality and of price.

Mr. J. R. H. Hutchison

It is the policy in Kenya, subject to the considerations which my hon. Friend mentions, to buy locally fuel, most food and the limited requirements of maintenance stores which are readily available.
