HC Deb 21 July 1949 vol 467 c73W
56. Mr. Parker

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations whether he will postpone execution of any further death sentences arising from ritual murder trials in Basutoland until he has had a report on the matter from an anthropologist.

Mr. P. Noel-Baker

No. I think it would be unwise to adopt the course proposed by my hon. Friend.
