§ 104. Mr. Brockway
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies on what colonial services and on what items of the loan to Kenya he proposes to save £1,250,000 in this year's Estimates.
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
The loan to Kenya formed part of the assistance Her Majesty's Government agreed to supply to Kenya should the need for it arise this year. After a review of Kenya's financial position it was decided that Kenya could forgo £1 million since it expects to be able to cover the costs of the emergency this year from its own resources and from the £4 million grant which Her Majesty's Government is still providing. The £250,000 reduction in other services is made possible by a reassessment of the cost of African forces this year.
