HC Deb 15 June 1961 vol 642 cc75-6W
Mr. Stonehouse

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if the statement made by Mr. Ngala, leader of government business in Kenya, on 31st May, regarding independence for the Colony, which was issued by the Government Information Office, had the approval of the Governor.

Mr. Iain Macleod

The statement was issued on Mr. Ngala's authority; both the Governor and I consider that his words represent a wholly responsible approach to the question of Kenya's future constitutional advance.
