HC Deb 27 March 1907 vol 171 c1800

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies if he is yet in a position to give the names of the Commission appointed by the Trinidad Government to revise the local Customs tariff; whether a representative of the working class has been appointed a member of the Commission; and whether the proceedings of the Commission will be made public.


I regret that I am unable to give the hon. Member the information he desires, but the Secretary of State has telegraphed to the Governor on the subject.


Is it not strange that information which appeared in the Press weeks ago cannot be got for the Government yet?

[No Answer was returned.]
