HC Deb 22 July 1936 vol 315 c426
17. Mr. McGHEE

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies the date on which the Municipality of the Port of Spain, Trinidad, British West Indies, will take over, in accordance with the judgment of the court, the Trinidad Electric Light Company?


The judgment of the Supreme Court of Trinidad did not finally conclude the matters arising out of the arbitration, since, in the first place, it directed remission to the arbitrators on one question and, in the second place, as neither the Port of Spain Municipality nor the Trinidad Electric Light Company is satisfied with the judgment of the Supreme Court, they are proceeding by way of appeal to the Privy Council. It is expected that the appeal will be heard in October.
