§ 54. Mr. MANDER
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will give particulars of the cases recently heard in Kenya in connection with the enforcement of compulsory military service?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Sir Philip Cunliffe-Lister)
I have ascertained that, in a case heard on the 2nd June, the defendant pleaded guilty and was convicted under Section 22 of the Kenya Defence Force Ordinance, being sentenced to a fine of£5 or one month's imprisonment in default. Payment by instalments of£l per month was ordered, and the first instalment has been paid. One similar charge has been withdrawn, as the defendant had subsequently complied with the Ordinance. There have been no other cases.
