§ MR. HENNIKER HEATON (Canterbury)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies when does Lord 1631 Carrington's term of office, as Governor of New South Wales, expire; has any successor been appointed to succeed him; and whether the Secretary of State for the Colonies has unofficially submitted the name of Lord Carrington's successor to the Prime Minister, Sir Henry Parkes; or is it his intention to do so?
§ BARON H. DE WORMS
Lord Carring ton has expressed a wish to resign in November. No successor has yet been appointed. The Secretary of State's Despatch of the 8th July, 1889, presented to Parliament in the Paper C, 5828, shows the views of Her Majesty's Government as to consulting the Colonial Governments before appointing Governors, and I have nothing to add.
