HC Deb 10 May 1960 vol 623 c49W
Mr. Stonehouse

asked the Minister of State for Commonwealth Relations what consideration has been given by Her Majesty's Government to the use by the United Kingdom of the reserve powers to disallow the Preventive Detention Act, 1959, of Southern Rhodesia, which is discriminating against Africans; and with what result.

Mr. Alport

The provisions of the Preventive Detention (Temporary Provisions) Act, 1959, of Southern Rhodesia were fully considered after it had been passed by the Legislature of Southern Rhodesia and my noble Friend decided not to advise disallowance.
