HC Deb 16 February 1888 vol 322 c552
COMMANDER BETHELL (York, E.R., Holderness)

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies, Whether he is aware that British Residents in the Island of Mahè still complain of partial and unjust administration of the Laws, and of other grievances; and, whether he will cause another and more rigid inquiry to be made into the affairs of that Island?


Since the inquiry held in the early part of last year, which was mentioned in my reply of the 11th of February, 1887, to a Question of the hon. Member on this subject, I have not received any further complaints from the Island, and I therefore do not propose to order another inquiry to be held. I have no reason to suppose that the former inquiry was not sufficiently rigid.
