HC Deb 21 July 1954 vol 530 cc119-20W
58. Mr. J. Hynd

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what representations he has received from the Federated Industrial and Agricultural Workers' Union of St. Vincent, concerning alleged victimisation of their members by police and other officials; and what replies he has given to these representations.

Mr. Lyttelton

I have received a letter from the president of the union urging an inquiry into the conduct of the police and other officials. It has been acknowledged. I had earlier said, in answer to a motion on the same subject by the same person in the St. Vincent Legislative Council, that I saw no grounds for instituting an inquiry.
