§ MR. MCKENNA (Monmouth, N.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he can state if the Honourable A. B. Morine, formerly a Minister of the Colony of Newfoundland, was dispensed from further service in his office by the Governor of the Colony on grounds appertaining to his conduct as a Minister?
THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR INDIA (for The SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES)
Mr. Moraine was required by the Governor to resign office on the ground that he was the legal adviser of Mr. Reid, with whom the Colonial Government has entered into a railway contract.
