asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations and the Colonies if he will now state the further proposals agreed with the Kenya Government for financial assistance in dealing with the problem of mixed farming areas, in addition to the present land settlement programme under which farms in selected areas are purchased from Europeans to provide smallholdings for Africans.
asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations and the Colonies whether he is aware that there is much land outside the Million Acre Resettlement Scheme in Kenya suitable for resettlement; and whether he will introduce proposals for an extension of the scheme.
May we take it that Ministers in Kenya are agreed with Her Majesty's Ministers here that the problem of the European mixed farms is an urgent one and should be solved as soon as possible? Does my right hon. Friend hope to make a statement before the House rises for the Summer Recess?
Is my right hon. Friend aware that the decision on the Ol Kalu salient has been pending for a long time and that there are at least 100 additional compassionate cases which should be assisted to leave Kenya? Will he give consideration to this matter as well as to phase 2 of the Million Acre Scheme?
Will my right hon. Friend accept, in his efforts to reach a satisfactory conclusion in what is really a very difficult and also a very urgent problem, that he will command very wide support? Does my right hon. Friend realise that what most of us have in mind is the provision of some scheme in the interests of Kenya which will induce people to stay in the country and not leave it?
Does my right hon. Friend realise that a month ago he told us that he was considering these proposals, and that the delay is doing incalculable harm both to the economy of Kenya and to the position of European mixed farmers who are uncertain about their future? Will he get an early decision on this matter?
