HC Deb 26 June 1930 vol 240 cc1333-4
46. Mr. FOOT

asked the Prime Minister if it is intended that the Measure for the suspension of the Constitution in Malta shall receive the sanction of the British Parliament; and, if so, if he will state when the opinion of this House will be taken?


Owing to the urgency of the matter it was necessary to act without delay. The requisite legislation was enacted by His Majesty in Council this morning. It will become operative on proclamation by the Governor in Malta.

47. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Prime Minister for how long it is proposed to suspend the constitution in Malta?


It is not possible at present to give any forecast of how long the suspension will be necessary.
