§ 44. Captain HEILGERS
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the recent outbreaks of violence on sugar estates in St. Kitts have ceased; and what steps are being taken to prevent the recurrence of such outbreaks?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Sir Philip Cunliffe-Lister)
The reply to the first part of my hon. and gallant Friend's question is in the affirmative. As regards the second part of his question, I am awaiting a report from the Governor of the Leeward Islands on the origin of the trouble. On receipt of this I shall consider what steps it may be possible to take to prevent the recurrence of such disturbances.
§ Mr. T. WILLIAMS
Does the right hon. Gentleman say that he is not aware of the cause of the outbreak of violence?
