§ 23. Mr. Healey
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he has yet decided when he will release Mr. Rahman al Baker, and two other Bahreinis sentenced with him, from detention on St. Helena.
§ Mr. Healey
The Foreign Secretary will recall that, in his reply on that occasion, he suggested that he was considering remitting the rest or part of the remainder of the sentence. Can he say when he is going to take a decision on the matter? It has been in front of him for several years. Is he aware that it is the unanimous view of many people—I think most of the Opposition—that the continual imprisonment of these subjects of a foreign State in Her Majesty's prisons is absolutely intolerable?
