§ 52. Mr. ORMSBY-GORE
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has agreed to the appointment of a Trade Commissioner in London for the Colony of British Guiana; whether any appointment has yet been made; where the office will be situated; and what will be the annual cost of maintaining it?
§ Mr. LUNN
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative, and to the second in the negative. The office would, no doubt, be established in London, and the Secretary of State understands that the Combined Court has voted £2,000 to cover salary, office expenses and all incidental expenses.
§ Mr. ORMSBY-GORE
Is it intended that this post—which, presumably, is partly under the hon. Gentleman's Department—shall be filled by somebody who is thoroughly familiar with the actual conditions in British Guiana, and appointed practically from the Colony?
