§ MAJOR ANSTRUTHER-GRAY (St. Andrews Burghs)
I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, in consideration of the suffering' caused by the removal of the garrison at St. Helena, he will consider the advisability of making a further grant to the islanders to help them tide over their present troubles.
§ THE UNDER-SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES (MR. CHURCHILL, Manchester, N.W.)
I can assure the hon. and gallant Member that the Secretary of State is watching events in St. Helena with sympathetic interest, and, if circumstances at any time demand it, he will not hesitate to ask the Lords Commissioners of the Treasury to give further assistance to the island.
§ MAJOR ANSTRUTHER-GRAY
May I ask what garrison it is proposed to 483 furnish St. Helena with in the event of Zulu prisoners being sent there?
