Prince Paul of Yugoslavia is required to live in a house set aside for his use by the Government of Kenya. There is a police guard and he is under the surveillance of an administrative officer who is resident in the house.

Captain Gunningham-Reid:

Can my hon. Friend say whether the wife of Prince Paul is also a political prisoner, and, if not, why not?

Is it not the case that this Prince is being treated quite differently from any ordinary British or German subject?
