HC Deb 09 April 1964 vol 692 c236W
45. Sir A. Hurd

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations and the Colonies if agreement was reached with the Kenya Government last month in Nairobi to conduct a further land purchase scheme to acquire farms from Europeans and settle more Africans on the land; and if he will ensure that there is no avoidable delay in announcing the terms in detail so that those European farmers who have doubts whether they will be able to carry on may know what the future will be.

Mr. Sandys

The talks held last month in Nairobi included a general discussion of the Kenya Government's future land policy, and further discussions will take place shortly.
