asked the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies, Whether he has received from the Governor of British Guiana a Despatch conveying a Memorial from a large number of Portuguese in that colony, complaining of the general course of legislation and the administration of justice therein; what course the Government propose to take in regard to it; and, whether he will lay the Governor's Despatch and the Memorial and accompanying document upon the Table?


said, in reply, that such a Memorial had reached the Colonial Office. Full inquiries had been made into the allegations contained in the Memorial and the Despatch. The documents would be laid before Parliament.
