HC Deb 02 April 1928 vol 215 c1575
9. Mr. DAY

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies the number of tribesmen at present detained at the Sinarango Prison Camp, Malaita, awaiting trial for the murders that occurred last October; and when it is proposed to try these prisoners?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Mr. Amery)

I am informed that 191 natives were arrested, but I am not aware how many of these are detained at Sinarango. The trials were expected to open at the end of March.


Have any of these men died since their incarceration?


No, Sir; I have heard there was dysentery in the camp, and I have telegraphed for information.
