§ MR. CAREW (Kildare, N.)
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies, Whether Mr. Clifford Lloyd has left the Seychelles, and is now in this country; and, whether he still occupies the post of Governor at the Seychelles, or whether his services have been dispensed with; and, if so, on what grounds?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Sir HENRY HOLLAND) (Hampstead)
Mr. Clifford Lloyd never went to the Seychelles, having left Mauritius for England on sick leave before the Secretary of State's despatch appointing him to act as Chief Civil Commissioner of Seychelles reached Mauritius. He is now in this country. He has never occupied the post referred to, having remained in England on leave since his return from Mauritius. The Chief Civil Commissioner, whose place it was intended last year that he should temporarily fill, will shortly resume the duties of this office, and Mr. Lloyd's services will not be required.
§ DR. TANNER (Cork Co., Mid)
asked whether Mr. Clifford Lloyd had come home in connection with the removal of the late Governor of Mauritius?
