HC Deb 16 July 1959 vol 609 cc46-7W
55. Mr. Foot

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many persons are now detained at Hola Camp; and how many such persons have at any time been convicted of Mau Mau offences.

Mr. J. Amery

According to the latest information I have, there were only 17 persons held under detention orders at Hola Camp at the beginning of the month I am asking the Governor how many, if any, of these were former Mau Mau convicts, and I will write to the hon. and learned Member when I have his reply, but all the men in question are detained for Mau Mau activities.
