83. Miss Lee
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what restrictions now exist on the right of public assembly in British Guiana; and on what date full freedom to hold public meetings will be restored.
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
Under Section 19 of the Emergency Order, public meetings and processions are prohibited except with the permission of the Commissioner of Police, which is freely granted for gatherings of a non-political character. The Governor has informed me that he is at present considering whether further relaxation should now be made, and that he hopes to announce his decision shortly.
