HC Deb 10 November 1954 vol 532 c134W
Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many detention orders have been made in Kenya under the Emergency Powers Regulations; how many such orders have been enforced; how many detainees have exercised their right to appear before the advisory committee under those regulations; in how many cases the advisory committee has recommended release conditionally and unconditionally, respectively; and in how many of these cases such recommendations were followed by actual release.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

24,533 Orders have been made, and 24,206 enforced. 772 detainees have appealed to the advisory committee, which has recommended that one should be released unconditionally and 16 conditionally. That advice has been followed in all but four cases which are still being considered.
