§ MR. PROVAND (Glasgow, Blackfriars, &c.)
asked the Secretary of State 57 for the Colonies, Whether he has received a Memorial from Colonists of British Honduras protesting against the proposal to send back R. T. Goldsworthy, esquire, C.M.G., as Governor to that Colony, on the expiration of his leave of absence, on the ground that his administration has been extravagant and unconstitutional, and praying for the appointment of a Royal Commission to inquire into these and other charges on the spot; and, whether he has taken, or purposes to take, any action in connection with the said Memorial?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Sir HENRY HOLLAND) (Hampstead)
I have received the Memorial referred to, and have called upon Mr. Goldsworthy for his Report upon it, which I shall consider with the allegations of the Memorial. I am, therefore, not at present in a position to state what action I shall take.
