HC Deb 29 February 1956 vol 549 c124W
59. Mr. Fernyhough

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many trade union leaders have been arrested in Kenya during the last twelve months; and how many of them are still detained.

Mr. Hare

So far as I am aware, one prominent trade union official was arrested on a criminal charge in the last twelve months. My right hon. Friend is, however, asking the Governor for any further relevant information which he will send to the hon. Member.
