HC Deb 19 May 1954 vol 527 cc124-5W
50. Mr. Alport

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether Her Majesty's Government will appoint a technical group to inquire into the anthropological and psychological aspects of the Mau Mau outbreak.

Mr. Hopkinson

In February this year the Kenya Government invited Dr. J. C. Carothers, a psychiatrist with a number of years experience in Kenya, to carry out a special investigation into the psychology of Mau Mau. He completed his report last month. Until this has been examined, I cannot say what further steps in this matter will be required.
