HC Deb 03 June 1965 vol 713 c254W
58. Mr. Will Griffiths

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many persons are now detained without trial in British Guiana; for how long have they been detained; and when is it proposed that they will be either released or brought to trial.

Mr. Greenwood

Fourteen persons are detained. They have been in detention since 13th June, 1964. I am confident that they will be released as soon as the interests of public safety and order allow, but this is a matter for the British Guiana Government, who have it under constant review and to whose attention I am bringing this question and answer.
