HC Deb 13 November 1958 vol 595 c67W
75. Mr. Stonehouse

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what action the Uganda Government have taken with regard to Uganda National Congress documents published abroad; why such action has been taken; and what arrests have been made in connection with the importation of such documents.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

Because of the subversive tone of publications emanating from the Cairo office of the Uganda National Congress, the Governor in Council has banned all publications from this source. One person has been arrested and charged with importing and possessing such publications and he was convicted and cautioned yesterday.
