§ 54. Mr. Sorensen
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware that the Government of Sierra Leone proposes in its legislation validating acts committed under the Sherbro Judicial Ordinance, 1923, to make this legislation retrospective, and thereby to indemnify public officers for action in demolishing certain private buildings; and whether he will issue instructions for the suspension of the proposed legislation?
Mr. M. MacDonald
I am informed that legislation of the nature referred to has been passed by the Legislative Council of Sierra Leone after a free vote, when the majority of the Unofficial Members voted for the Bill. I am expecting shortly an explanatory report giving details of the legislation.
