HC Deb 09 May 1966 vol 728 cc10-1W
58. Mr. G. Campbell

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether Her Majesty's Government have taken any action on the resolution passed by the United Nations Special Committee of 24 which called upon the United Kingdom to desist from effecting mass arrests in Aden and to cease all repressive actions there.

Mrs. White

Her Majesty's Government have taken no action on the Resolution of 22nd March, against which the British representative voted, since it was misconceived and unrelated to the facts. There were no mass arrests. A total of 38 people suspected of complicity in terrorism were arrested over a period of a fortnight for questioning about their suspected activities. Fifteen of these have since been released.
