HC Deb 18 June 1959 vol 607 c72W
Mr. Wall

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies on what date the Kenya Minister for Defence and Minister for African Affairs approved the proposals of Mr. Cowan for use at Hola.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

The proposals were approved by the Minister for Defence on 19th February and by the Minister for African Affairs on 23rd February, subject to ensuring that there were sufficient staff of all ranks at Hola to deal with the situation. There could, therefore, have been no relation between the approval of the proposals and the debate in this House on 24th February.
