HC Deb 11 April 1956 vol 551 cc15-6W
59. Mr. Brockway

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if a decision has yet been reached regarding the conditions under which Africans will be enfranchised in Kenya.

Mr. Hare

A Bill implementing the Kenya Government's policy in regard to African elections as set out in Sessional Paper No. 39 of 1955–56 was debated in the Legislative Council on 24th February and was passed without amendment. The necessary administrative arrangements for holding African elections before March, 1957, are now being made.
