HC Deb 12 November 1952 vol 507 c54W
83. Mr. Paton

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he is aware that African terrorist suspects have been chained in Nairobi and that photographs showing them chained have been displayed in an English newspaper; and if he will take steps to stop the practice of chaining suspects and protect them from photographs which may prejudice them in subsequent proceedings.

Mr. Lyttelton

The authorities in Kenya must be trusted to take whatever measures are necessary to prevent prisoners escaping. I do not believe that there could be any question of such photographs prejudicing a prisoner in subsequent proceedings.
