HC Deb 13 December 1950 vol 482 cc1139-40
37. Mr. Grimond

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he can now make a statement on the case of Mr. Musazi.

Mr. J. Griffiths

I have nothing to add to my reply to the hon. Member for Bristol, Central (Mr. Awbery) on 25th October.

Mr. Grimond

Does that mean that Mr. Musazi cannot return to his home, or that he would run certain risks if he did so?

Mr. Griffiths

I would refer the hon. Gentleman to my earlier reply. The man came to this country some time ago in circumstances which I described in that reply. The view of the Governor, which I share, is that he ought not to go back.

Mr. A. Fenner Brockway

Is my right hon. Friend willing to consider new evidence and considerations in this matter?

Mr. Griffiths

I do not think that I could consider new evidence produced now, two years after the investigation.

Mr. Awbery

Can my right hon. Friend say under what conditions this man could return?

Mr. Griffiths

Not without notice.
