§ 56. Mr. Rose
asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Affairs what action he is taking to secure the release from prison of John Andrew Conradie, sentenced by the courts of the illegal régime in Rhodesia to 20 years' imprisonment for crimes against that illegal régime and whose life expectancy is between 10 and 20 years under normal conditions.
§ Mr. George Thomas
Mr. John Andrew Conradie was sentenced by the High Court in Salisbury to 20 years' imprisonment. He pleaded guilty to six charges of offences against the law of Southern Rhodesia, including conspiring to commit murder. I intend to take no action to secure his release at the present time.
