§ Colonel WEDGWOOD
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the draft amending ordinance to the forced labour ordinance in East Africa has now been received by the Colonial Office; and whether, before receiving the approval of the Secretary of State, this will be laid upon the Table of the House?
The draft amending ordinance has not yet been received; but I am expecting it by an early mail. I shall be happy to place a copy of the ordinance, as and when finally approved by the Secretary of State, in the Library of the House.
§ Mr. T. GRIFFITHS
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has yet received the despatch from the Governor concerning the alleged shooting down of natives of Nairobi before any hostile act against the police was made; and whether at any time a single 257W policeman, soldier, or white man, was in any way injured by those who were demanding the release of Harry Thuku?
I have received the despatch from the Governor, and papers including the despatch will be laid this week.
