HC Deb 05 March 1957 vol 566 cc43-4W
Mr. Brockway

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations if he will now state what action has been taken in the case of Elias Monare who was irregularly arrested in Basutoland and returned to the Union of South Africa.

Mr. Alport

As the hon. Member has already been informed, the administrative instructions, which were not precise, are being revised. In the meantime, detailed instructions have been issued to administrative and police officers regarding the correct procedure to be followed under the Fugitive Offenders Act. The individual responsible for the irregularity to which the hon. Member refers has been appropriately dealt with by the Resident Commissioner, in accordance with my noble Friend's instructions.
