HC Deb 15 December 1948 vol 459 cc151-2W
77. Mr. Henderson Stewart

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he is aware of the continued printed and spoken propaganda of the Communist-inspired agitators in British Guiana; what steps he is taking in the matter; and when the report of the Governor's inquiry into the shooting incident during the recent strike is to be published.

Mr. Creech Jones

As I informed the hon. Member on 5th November, the Government in British Guiana is alive to the need for prompt action to deal with any contravention of the laws relating to sedition, and I am satisfied that this possibility is constantly in mind. As regards the last part of the Question, I would invite attention to the reply given to my hon. Friend the Member for Central Hackney (Mr. H. Hynd) on the 8th December.
