HC Deb 17 July 1883 vol 281 c1683

asked the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies, If he is now able to say whether the Collector General and the Agent General of Immigration, both official members of the Legislative Council of the island of Jamaica, are absent from the Colony, in addition to those officials mentioned by him as being absent, namely, the Governor, the Colonial Secretary and Lieutenant Governor, the Chief Justice, the Attorney General, and the Director of Public Works?


The Protector of Immigrants has, I find, just arrived in England on leave, and the Collector General has recently retired. But the Attorney General will be now arriving in Jamaica; and the vacancies to which the hon. Member refers will be filled up as soon as possible, and that will be very shortly indeed.
