§ 92. Mr. ORMSBY-GORE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether a copy of the Ainsworth-Northey Labour Ordinance for British East Africa has yet been received; whether the terms of this Ordinance have been examined by the Colonial Office with a view to revision; whether the Ordinance is being acted upon or has been suspended pending amendment; and when a copy of the Ordinance will be presented to Parliament?
§ Lieut.-Colonel AMERY
I understand my hon. Friend to refer to the Labour Circular—not an ordinance—issued last October. As stated in the House on 16th June, in reply to the hon. and gallant Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme, copies of the circular have been received, and an amending circular is about to be issued. The two circulars will be laid on the Table at the same time, and I expect that there will be little delay before this is done.
