§ MR. WATT
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the Secretary of State has nominated a successor to Colonel Cotton as Inspector General of the Armed Police of the Colony of British Guiana; and whether any scheme has been received from the Governor for the defence of the colony since the removal of the Imperial troops?
§ BARON H. DE WORMS
The Secretary of State has selected Colonel McInnis, Commandant of Local Forces in Trinidad, to succeed Colonel Cotton. Arrangements for strengthening the local forces in the colony are under the consideration of Her Majesty's Government and the Colonial Government.
