HC Deb 15 February 1922 vol 150 c1014
70. Mr. L. MALONE

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies the number of Arabs from Iraq now in prison or in internment in Ceylon or elsewhere?


So far as my information goes, the only Iraq Arab, apart from those convicted of criminal offences, and consequently not covered by the recent general amnesty, who can be described as in prison or in internment outside of Iraq, is Saiyid Talib, concerning whom a reply was given to the hon. Member yesterday. He is about to proceed to take waters at a spa in Southern Europe.
