Mr. Foley

Some United Kingdom passport holders of Asian origin are having to leave Kenya as a result of the Kenyanisation policies of the Kenya Government. Those wishing to come to this country fall to be admitted under the arrangements announced by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of state for the Home Department on 22nd February, 1968, others may go to India under the arrangements described in answer by my hon. Friend the then Under-Secretary, to my hon. Friend the Member for Yarmouth (Dr. Gray) on 22nd October, 1968. Officials of the British High Commission are in touch with officials of the Governments concerned as necessary on individual cases.—[Vol. 759, c. 659; Vol. 770, c. 1068–9.]
