asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware that disaffection exists in the colony of Grenada, British West Indies, over the treatment of the police force who went on strike last year; that the incidents connected with the petition by the police for an increase of pay were badly handled by the local officials; that the Governor has admitted publicly that his instructions were not carried out; that a definite promise of non-victimisation was officially given at the time of the strike settlement"; and whether he will state the reasons for antedating the increased pay to certain members, in view of the promise made?
§ Dr. SHIELS
The answer to the first and third parts of the question is in the negative, and to the second in the affirmative. As regards the last part, 427W I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply returned to his question on 6th February, from which it will be evident that no victimisation has taken place.
