HC Deb 07 March 1945 vol 408 c2014
40. Mr. Creech Jones

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he is able to make a statement on the deportation to another part of Uganda of Samwiri S. Wanda, lately principal Minister.

Colonel Stanley

Yes, Sir. Samwiri Wamala has been deported by the Governor, with the concurrence of the Kabaka, by an Order under the Deportation Ordinance. This Order was made as a consequence of the disturbances last January and as a measure of security pending the report of the Commission of Inquiry to which I referred in my reply on 31st January to the hon. and gallant Member for North St. Pancras (Wing-Commander Grant-Ferris).

Mr. Creech Jones

Will the right hon. and gallant Gentleman say whether it is suspected that this man was one of the instigators in the recent disturbances?

Colonel Stanley

I am anxious not to express an ex parte opinion of that kind before the decision of this Commission of Inquiry.
