At the end of October there were nine British subjects and four enemy aliens detained under Jamaica Defence Regulation 18 (1), which corresponds to Regulation 18B in this country. The case of Domingo was reconsidered by the Advisory Committee in August. They were unable to recommend his release in Jamaica and the Governor accepted this advice.
