REPRESENTATIVES of hundreds of Kenyan plantation workers have won a bid to take a multi-million-pound negligence action against a Scottish tea firm. Aberdeen-based tea company James Finlay (Kenya) Ltd, which supplies Tesco and Sainsbury’s, has said in its defence to concerns that no decisions about the working environment in Kenya are taken in Scotland. But Lord Weir in the Court of Session has accepted that workers had a prima facie case and allowed the class action to be heard.
