§ MR. KELLY(for Sir GEORGE BADEN-POWELL) (Liverpool, Kirkdale) (Camberwell, N.)
asked the Under Secretary of 956 State for the Colonies, Whether he can now state the terms that have been offered by the New York Syndicate for the purchase of the Jamaica Government Railways; whether it is open to the public to tender for the purchase of those railways; and, whether Her Majesty's Government, in the event of sale, will only accept payment either in cash or in bonds, or shares, enjoying absolute priority of lien on the railway property?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE (Baron HENRY DE WORMS) (Liverpool, East Toxteth)
The proposals that have been made are being considered; and they cannot now be stated. This answer must be taken to cover the remaining parts of my hon. Friend's Question.
