§ Mr. George Thomas
As my right hon. Friend informed the House on 10th July, prompt and vigorous representations were made to President Kenyatta and others in his Government about the lack of consideration shown in carrying out the expulsion orders. I greatly hope that there will be no further such expulsions but should the Kenya Government ever feel obliged to make any I trust that as a result of our representations the harsh treatment recently experienced will not be repeated.
The properties of those expelled are presently being managed by wives, partners, or managers with the help of friends and neighbours. Our High Commission have kept in constant touch with the wives and families of the expelled farmers to help organise managerial assistance where necessary, and to deal with the problems arising from the departure of the expellees at such short notice.—[Vol. 750, c. 97–101.]
