asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the ban recently placed upon seven members of the Peoples' National Party in Jamaica prohibiting them from engaging in political propaganda in the island is still in force; and whether he will state the grounds for such prohibition?
Yes, Sir. Restrictive orders were issued against these men by the Governor under Jamaica Defence Regulation No. 17, as they have been engaged in subversive propaganda work.
In view of that statement, will the right hon. and gallant Gentleman be a little more explicit? Can he give us some indication of the actual nature of the offence committed by these persons?
