HC Deb 29 June 1914 vol 64 c37

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the Trinidad Legislative Council have refused to consider his suggestion that the qualification for councillors in the Port-of- Spain Municipality Ordinance was too high; and, if so, whether he proposes to assent to the Ordinance in its present form?

The SECRETARY OF STATE for the COLONIES (Mr. Harcourt)

I have no official information, but I understand that the Legislative Council of Trindad have declined to accept my suggestion. In these circumstances I regret that I do not at present feel able to pursue the matter further.
