HC Deb 10 November 1954 vol 532 c134W
91. Mrs. White

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what steps have been taken to bring to the notice of employers in Kenya the need to ensure that when employees are detained as Mau Mau suspects but are subsequently cleared, their wages, housing conditions and seniority, on reinstatement, are not less good than they previously were; and what example is set in the public services.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

Workers in permanent Government employment who are detained as Mau Mau suspects and subsequently cleared are fully reinstated. The Kenya Government has sought to persuade private employers to adopt a similar procedure, and there is no reason to believe that most responsible firms have not done so.
