asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many ex-members of the Colonial Service or Her Majesty's Overseas Civil Service are receiving pensions from the Government of Kenya; and how many of these are receiving increases less than those received under the Pensions (Increase) Act, 1959, of the United Kingdom.

I have asked the Acting Governor for further information and will write to my hon. Friend as soon as I have it.

Is it not surprising that the figures have been supplied to me from the Crown Agent and that my right hon. Friend does not know?

I am not sure that I have been completely caught out this time. I hope to prove that I have not been.

Does this pleasant rather late co-operation betoken a change of heart after Lord Boyd's speech in another place?

I do not quite follow the drift of my hon. Friend's question, but if there is ever a change of heart I am sure that it is for the better. I am not quite sure what she is referring to.
