  • Kenya civil servants are advised to be cautious when dealing with members of Legislative Council in a circular issued by Mr. W. F Coutts,the chief secretary.
  • The circular states :In the past cases have arisen where Civil Servants have mistakenly thought themselves to be under an obligation to furnish members of Legislative Council with official information, if asked to do so. This is not so.
  • The correct channel for the communication of official matters to Members of Legislative Council, who require information on such subjects, is through the appropriate Minister and Civil Servants who are personally approached by Members in regards to these must courteously refuse to divulge information.
