HC Deb 15 March 1910 vol 15 c174

asked whether, seeing Mr. Garnett's connection with certain companies doing business with the British Guiana Protectorate, he was allowed to vote in the Executive Council, to which he was appointed as a temporary member, when questions affecting the said companies arose?

Colonel SEELY

Matters are not decided by vote in the Executive Council of British Guiana. The Council advises the Governor but, as I stated on Thursday last, he is not bound to accept such advice in any particular case, though no doubt he often finds it valuable in enabling him to form a decision.
