HC Deb 06 April 1971 vol 815 c96W
Mr. Wall

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if, in view of the recent financial agreement, he will approach the Kenya Government about modifying their exchange control arrangements for British nationals returning to this country.

Mr. Kershaw

By agreement with the Government of Kenya, the Kenya Exchange Control Regulations do not apply to money paid out from British aid funds for the purchase of land, including permanent improvements and loose assets, from United Kingdom citizens. Apart from this, Kenya Exchange Control Regulations apply equally to citizens of all countries outside the East African Community, and I can see no grounds for Her Majesty's Government asking the Kenya Government to modify their regulations as they affect United Kingdom citizens.
