HC Deb 24 November 1908 vol 197 c97
MR. SUMMERBELL (Sunderland)

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies if he can state whether a memorial has been received signed by 104 proprietors, residing at California village, in the ward of Savonetta, Couva, Trinidad, protesting against the action of the Colonial Government in imposing water rates and enforcing the payment of the same upon a section of the taxpayers of the town of Couva and the village of California without giving them, as an equivalent for such payment, any water; and, if so, can he state what action has been taken in the matter.


NO, Sir; the Memorial has not been received at the Colonial Office.
