asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies the standard rate of wages paid to African workers on European farms and in the gold mines, respectively, in Kenya Colony?
§ Mr. ORMSBY-GORE
There are no standard rates of wages in Kenya, but from the last available published report on Native Affairs, namely, for the year 1934, I understand that the wages paid to African agricultural labourers ranged from 6s. to 12s. a month plus rations. In the mining industry the wages ranged from 8s. to 100s. a month according to the type of work performed.
