§ 61. Sir W. BYLES
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he can give the House any further information about the reported outbreak among the troops at Singapore; to what cause is it attributed; and what kind of inquiry will be ordered?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Mr. Harcourt)
I cannot at present supplement the announcement that has been given to the Press. The nature of the inquiry to be instituted is now under the consideration of His Majesty's Government, who are in communication with the Governor on the subject.
