HC Deb 24 November 1964 vol 702 cc160-1W
75. Mr. Wall

asked the Minister of Overseas Development what decisions have been reached regarding the implementation of phase two of the million acre scheme in Kenya; and how much financial support Great Britain is making available.

Mrs. Castle

Purchase of land under the million acre scheme is expected to be completed in 1966. The Kenya Government made some proposals in April of this year for financial assistance from the British Government to enable them to purchase additional areas of European mixed farming land. We are at present holding fresh discussions with members of the Kenya Government on this subject and I cannot anticipate the outcome.
