§ 20. Mr. Allaun
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies the titles of the publications prohibited from import into British Guiana.
§ Mr. Allaun
Is it not elementary justice that emigrants to British Guiana should be told which books are banned before they embark? Is the Minister aware that at this moment a student, after five years' studies in England, is suffering six months' imprisonment for carrying with him a book which he did not know was forbidden?
§ Mr. Elwyn Jones
Can the right hon. Gentleman give an indication of what publications are included in this colonial index? Whose index is it?
§ Mr. Hare
I have said—the hon. and learned Gentleman could not have heard me—that I am circulating the list of publications in the OFFICIAL REPORT. If, having studied it, the hon. and learned Gentleman would like to put down another Question, I should be perfectly prepared to answer it. It would take up too much of the time of the House to read the list out now.
