§ Mr. Sorensen
asked the Secretary of State fox the Colonies whether the Sierra Leone Sedition Ordinance of 1940 is still in operation; how many prosecutions took place under it; what were the circumstances of the cases; whether there was differentiation between the treatment of political and other prisoners; and whether he will give particulars of cases under the Deportation Ordinance and the Undesirable Literature Ordinance.
§ Mr. George Hall
The Sierra Leone Sedition Ordinance of 1939 is still in force. This Ordinance merely re-stated in a concise and simple form the existing law scattered over a number of different Ordinances. I am asking the Governor to provide the detailed information for which my hon. Friend has asked, and will communicate with him as soon as it is received.
