Will not the Colonial Secretary admit that, although he is now doing so well in so many fields, on this particular issue he is being very unrealistic? Is he not aware that leading political figures in the African groups want Mr. Kenyatta to be released, and that many Europeans now also agree that if there is to be unity in Kenya, Mr. Kenyatta must be allowed to return to civil life? Would not the right hon. Gentleman revise his position on this matter?
