§ 44. Mr. Dumpleton
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the case of the 14 men deported from Buganda in September, 1945, has been reviewed; and what action is contemplated.
§ Mr. George Hall
Yes, Sir; these deportations are reviewed regularly at three-monthly intervals. In his latest review the Governor has reported that it would be prejudicial to the progress and well-being of Buganda if these persons were allowed to return at the present time. The cases will be kept under close review.
§ Mr. Dumpleton
Would the Minister agree that, whatever justification there may be for the Governor's report, it is undesirable that this deportation should be continued indefinitely without the men being given an opportunity to have a fair trial?
