HC Deb 26 February 1894 vol 21 c1031
MR. D. SULLIVAN (Westmeath, S.)

On behalf of the hon. Member for West Kerry, I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies whether Colonel Sir A. Macworth, R.E., has reported adversely on the public works undertaken in the Island of Dominica under loan; and, if so, whether the Governor of the Leeward Islands will be held responsible for the expenditure; and whether, in connection with the finances of Dominica, a large floating debt has been incurred by the Governor without any vote of the Local Legislature; and, if so, whether the Governor has exceeded his functions in this matter?


It is possible that this may be one of the points that will be dealt with by Sir R. Hamilton in his Report, not yet received; so meanwhile I would ask my hon. Friend to let the matter stand over.
