§ DR. TANNER (Cork Co., Mid.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether his attention has been called to the present state of the land question in Ceylon, as administered by 775 General West Ridgeway; and whether he will endeavour to secure that the Estimates for the expenses of that Colony are brought forward at a time which will give honourable Members a convenient opportunity to discuss this subject?
THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES (Mr. J, CHAMBERLAIN, Birmingham, W.)
; Questions relating to the recent Land Ordinance in Ceylon have been and are under my consideration. There are no such Estimates— Ceylon receives no grant-in-aid from Imperial funds.
