Download PDF for this date

The Nairobi Government has under consideration the question of permitting establishment of Jewish settlements in Kenya colony, Colonial Secretary Malcolm MacDonald advised the House of Commons today.

“There can be no question of the mass settlement of Jews in Kenya nor of disturbing land allotted for native occupation,” he added, however, in reply to a query put by Laborite Arthur Creech Jones.

“What is being examined,” MacDonald continued, “is the possibility of the settlement of a number of Jewish families of individual holdings in small groups elsewhere. I am not in a position yet to make a more particular statement.”
