HC Deb 02 February 1965 vol 705 cc264-5W
68. Mr. Wall

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations how many British journalists and how many other British subjects, respectively, have been expelled or banned from Kenya, Uganda, Tanganyika, Zanzibar and Tanzania, respectively, since the independence of each of these countries; and in how many cases official protests have been made.

Mr. Bottomley

According to the records in my Department, the numbers are as follows:

  • KENYA—Four journalists and six others.
  • UGANDA—NO journalists; nineteen others.
  • TANGANYIKA—One journalist and eight others.
  • ZANZIBAR—NO journalists; four others (these cases occurred after the 265 union of Zanzibar with Tanganyika and did not entail expulsion from Tanganyika).
  • TANZANIA—One journalist and four others.
  • Official representations were made in thirty-seven of these cases.
