HC Deb 28 June 1889 vol 337 c1014
MR. CONYBEARE (Cornwall, Camborne)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies why necessary public works for the sanitary improvement of Cape Coast have been suspended for the last nine months, and what has become of the sum set apart for such works in the Estimates; whether, as the objections to the Municipal Ordinance for the Gold Coast on the part of the Hon. John Sarbah were put in writing at the request of the governor, Sir W. B. Griffiths, and were fully considered, as well as the Amendments which were made by the community of Cape Coast, he would explain on what grounds the wishes of the people were so set aside; and, what steps the Government of the Gold Coast took to prevent the civil fight and great loss of life which recently took place at Morer near to Cape Coast?


I must ask the hon. Gentleman to postpone that question until Monday. It only appeared on the Paper this morning, and I have not had time to obtain the information.
