HC Deb 19 March 1941 vol 370 cc164-5W
Dr. Morgan

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware that, in January last, the police in Kingston, Jamaica, British West Indies, entered the house of a lawyer, Mr. Manley, and seized the books of his library; whether this action was taken on the instructions, and with the consent, of the Governor of the Colony, and with what object and for what purpose; and whether these books have yet been returned to the owner?

Mr. George Hall

No, Sir. I am informed by the Governor of Jamaica that on no occasion has Mr. Manley's house been entered by the police, nor have any of his books been seized.
