§ MR. CROMBIE (Kincardineshire)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies whether it is at his own request that Sir Henry Blake, Governor of Jamaica, has been relieved of the important duty of presiding over the Legislative Council of the island; and whether he will lay upon the Table of the House the correspondence which passed between Sir Henry Blake and the Colonial Office on the subject?
§ MR. BUXTON
It was upon the suggestion of Sir Henry Blake, the present Governor, that the Governor of Jamaica was relieved of the office of President of the Legislative Council. I will consider whether the correspondence can be given.
