HC Deb 11 February 1946 vol 419 c11
24. Mr. Warbey

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has received any further information about the apprehension of the persons concerned in the recent X-ite uprising in Kalamata and in the murder of 14 hostages.

Mr. McNeil

The area is still under martial law and judicial measures are therefore in the hands of military courts under the authority of the Military Governor. However, 48 warrants have so far been issued and 11 arrests have been made. An intensive drive is also being made throughout the province to disarm all elements of the population.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

Has the hon. Gentleman any information about the apprehension of the murderers of the local leader of the X movement, his two bodyguards and his infant son, which according to the Minister's statement in the House caused the original trouble in Kalamata?

Mr. McNeil

I hardly think this arises from the Question.
