HC Deb 22 July 1958 vol 592 c20W
64. Mr. K. Robinson

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies when the Turkish Cypriot organisation Volkan first engaged in violence; for how long it has advocated violence; and what proposals he has for declaring it illegal.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

Volkan ceased to exist about a year ago. If the hon. Member is referring to the Turkish Cypriot organisation known as T.M.T., its first known murder was 24th May. Previously its activities were mainly concerned with the distribution of leaflets. On the last part of the Question I have nothing to add to the reply given to the hon. Member on 15th July.
