HC Deb 04 February 1942 vol 377 cc1176-7
43. Dr. Morgan

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he can give particulars of the charges of corruption made against Alderman A. E. Richards, the mayor of the municipality of Port of Spain, Trinidad, who was arrested recently, and released on bail pending trial; whether the trial has taken place yet, or is proceeding; and whether every attempt will be made to stamp out, by strict impartial judicial inquiry, any growth of corruption in these Colonies?

Mr. George Hall

No information as to this case has been received from the Governor, but he is being asked for a report, and I will communicate with my hon. Friend on receipt of his reply.
