asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will sympathetically consider the possibility of reviewing the case of Wallace Johnson, of Sierra Leone, with a view to the removal of the present restrictions on his liberty?

It would not be justifiable to relax the present restrictions on the liberty of Mr. Wallace Johnson so long as the Governor is satisfied that such measures are necessary in order to prevent him from acting in a way prejudicial to public safety or defence. I have no doubt that the Governor will reconsider this case when circumstances justify his doing so.
