§ 34. Mr. Gammans
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how long the post of Chief Justice of the Seychelles has been vacant; and when it will be filled.
§ Mr. Mayhew
I have nothing at present to add to the reply given to the hon. Member for Leominster (Mr. Baldwin) on 28th January.
§ Mr. Gammans
Is it a fact that this appointment has been vacant now for nearly a year? Is it not most unsatisfactory that someone should not he appointed? Is the reason that the pay and prospects offered are not good enough to attract a first-class man?
§ Mr. Thomas Reid
What is the rate of salary assigned to this post? Has it anything to do with the difficulty of making the appointment?
