HC Deb 29 April 1958 vol 587 c26W
88. Mrs. Castle

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether detainees at Manyani Camp, Kenya, are compelled to do forced labour.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

No. Detainees in special detention camps such as Manyani can be usefully employed on work which the officer-in-charge is satisfied will assist towards bringing the emergency to an end. In practice, however, the only work required of detainees at Manyani is that which is necessary to keep the camp in a state of good order and cleanliness and for the preparation of food.
