§ MR. OSBORNE MORGAN (Denbighshire, E.)
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies, What position Sir John Pope Hennessy now occupies in the Mauritius; and, when the Papers relating to his suspense from the Government of the Colony will be laid upon the Table?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Sir HENRY HOLLAND) (Hampstead)
Sir John Pope Hennessy, who has been suspended by Sir Hercules Robinson from the administration of the government of Mauritius pending the consideration of his Report on the charges brought against Sir John Pope Hennessy has been directed to come to this country and give his explanations. I conclude, therefore, that he has left Mauritius. He will receive half the salary of Governor until his case is decided. With respect to the second paragraph of the Question, the right hon. and learned Member will see that Papers could not be laid on the Table until Her Majesty's Government have arrived at a decision upon the case.
§ DR. TANNER (Cork Co., Mid)
inquired whether Mr. Clifford Lloyd was in England in regard to the same matter?
§ SIR HENRY HOLLAND
Mr. Clifford Lloyd came home on sick leave, and his coming had nothing at all to do with this case.
