Mr. David Adams
asked the Undersecretary of State for the Colonies whether he will give particulars of the decision of the Governor of Jamaica as to the continued detention or release of the internees whose examination has now been completed by the new committee?
§ Mr. George Hall
Of the 17 persons who have been detained under the Jamaica Defence Regulation equivalent to the United Kingdom Regulation 18B, four were entitled to have their cases examined by the new committee. The committee has completed its review of these cases and recommended the release of two of these persons and the Governor has accepted their recommendation. Of the remaining 13, five have already been released after review of their cases by the Governor, and the remaining eight have now been informed that they may have their cases considered by the new committee if they so desire.
