HC Deb 01 December 1948 vol 458 c1999
37. Mr. Skeffington

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies in what circumstance two people were injured and one killed at Hargeisa, British Somaliland, on 24th August this year; and for what reasons people were being evicted from their houses and moved elsewhere on that date.

Mr. Creech Jones

My hon. Friend is no doubt referring to an incident at Hargeisa on 18th August when two women were injured during a demonstration against the removal of a number of mat huts to another area for sanitary reasons. No one was killed.
