§ 13. Mr. Parker
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs why the Government of the Sudan has banned Communist and Communist-controlled organisations; and if there is any evidence to show that such organisations have resorted to violence.
§ Mr. Ernest Davies
I am advised that the Sudan Government's reason for introducing this law is that, in their opinion, these organisations endanger the security of the Sudan and are liable to interfere with the good government of the country. As regards the second part of the Question, I am unaware that there has been any resort to violence.
