HC Deb 09 March 1949 vol 462 c1170
60. Mr. Drayson

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the Governor of Malta, in his capacity as Chancellor of Malta University, has yet carried out his threat to expel any member of the University Council who gave information about the proceedings of the Council meeting on 17th August, 1948.

Mr. Creech Jones

The suggestion that the Governor of Malta either in his capacity as Chancellor of the Royal University or otherwise made any threat against members of the University Council or staff of the University, or behaved in any way improperly, is completely untrue.

Mr. Drayson

Is the Minister aware that this matter was very fully reported in the Malta newspaper, and does he not consider that here is a case for recalling the Governor as being one of the boys who has failed in his job?

Mr. Creech Jones

I utterly repudiate the insinuation in the supplementary question. The Governor has discharged his work with great competence and devotion, and he has a fine record of work to his credit.
