HC Deb 21 January 1953 vol 510 c34W
76. Mr. Benn

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies when the hon. Member for Bristol, South-East, may expect a reply to the letter he and certain other hon. Members sent to him on 15th December, enclosing a copy of a cable from Mr. Pritt, sent at the request of the hon. Members referred to, and denying that he had only made one protest at the facilities made available to the defence counsel in the Kapenguria trials: why this information was withheld from the House; and if he will now make a statement upon every aspect of this matter.

Mr. Lyttelton

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave on 18th December to the hon. Member for Dudley (Mr. Wigg). In view of that reply, and of the debate on 19th December, I did not think that hon. Members would expect any further letter from me.
