§ MR. HENNIKER HEATON (Canterbury)
asked the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies, What was the cost of the telegraphic message sent from the Colonial Office to the Governor of Adelaide, dated December 3, 1886, on the subject of New Guinea?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE (Baron HENRY DE WORMS) (Liverpool, East Toxteth)
I presume that the hon. Member means the Governor of South Australia. No telegram was sent to the Governor of South Australia on the date mentioned by the hon. Member. One was sent to the Governor of Queensland at Brisbane, and its cost was £86 5s. 9d.
