HC Deb 01 July 1963 vol 680 c7W
63. Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Lord Privy Seal what official action was taken on behalf of Mr. James Hunter, a British subject, with regard to the search of his house and his interrogation by the Congolese Sûreté in Elisabethville; what other British subjects have been arrested, imprisoned, molested and interrogated in Katanga since the last United Nations offensive; and what explanations, apologies and reports have been received in these cases.

Mr. Heath

Mr. Hunter was released shortly after his detention for questioning and no official action was necessary. Full reports have been received of all cases in which British subjects have been interrogated. No British subjects have however been imprisoned or seriously molested. No apologies have been called for.
