HC Deb 14 April 1964 vol 693 c33W
44. Mr. Wall

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations and the Colonies what action he is now taking on the pay and pensions of the eight civil servants recently deported from Uganda; and what representations have now been made about suspending the deportation orders on the other six deportees.

Mr. Tilney

In Kampala our High Commissioner has kept in constant touch with the Uganda Government about the cases of these civil servants. I am now informed that the appointments of the permanent and pensionable officers involved have been terminated in accordance with the regulations. Pay and pensions earned have not thereby been prejudiced. The appointments of the contract officers have been terminated in accordance with the terms of their contracts.

As regards the second part of the Question I would refer my hon. Friend to what I said in the debate on 13th February on the subject of deportation.
