§ 23. Mr. MAXTON
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is able to give any information as to the recent strike of workers on Government work at Trincomalee?
§ Mr. ORMSBY-GORE
The Governor has telegrahed that the strike at Trincomalee occurred among the employés of a contractor employed by the military authorities. There was no trouble in the naval yards. I await a further report by mail.
