HC Deb 23 March 1960 vol 620 c45W
68. Mr. Driberg

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will negotiate for the removal of the clause insisting on racial discrimination in the lease of the Nyali leave centre, Kenya; and if he will publish in HANSARD the names of the directors and managers of the estate company responsible for this discrimination.

Mr. Soames

The leave centre is in a European residential zone where the clause referred to is standard in the lease of property. This is a temporary camp which it is our intention to give up in 1965 in favour of a permanent one a short distance away; and I have reason to believe that the lease of the new leave centre will not contain a restrictive clause of this kind. It is not the practice to give details of the kind asked for in the last part of the Question.
