HC Deb 17 July 1907 vol 178 c685

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies if he can state whether the Secretary of State for the Colonies has recently received from the Working Men's Association of Trinidad a communication calling attention to the discontent now existing amongst the railway employees of that Colony as to their conditions of service; and, if so, whether he could state if it is the intention of the Government to take any action as to any of the points raised by the said association.


The communication to which the hon. Member refers has been received. The Secretary of State is not at present prepared to admit that the railway employees in Trinidad have valid ground for discontent, but he will consult the Governor on the subject.
