This chapter demonstrates how economic interests influence settler lobbying of the Conservative Party. The sense of solidarity which many Conservatives felt towards the settlers of Kenya and the Central African Federation made the fate of these areas a question of major importance. The chapter describes the European settlers in British Africa, European resistance to change in Kenya, and methods employed by the government of the Central African Federation to lobby the Conservative Party, and looks at patterns of settler lobbying.

Keywords: Kenya; Central African Federation; European settlers; Conservative Party; settler lobbying
