§ Dr. O'DONOVAN
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will publish correspondence to and from the Governor of Trinidad concerning the Divorce Bill now under consideration?
§ Sir P. CUNLIFFE-LISTER
A Divorce Bill has been introduced in the Legislative Council of Trinidad by the Government in accordance with a resolution passed by a free vote of the Legislative Council on 7th March, 1931. The introduction of the Bill has been approved subject to the insertion of a Clause suspending the operation of the law, if and when passed, until His Majesty's pleasure is known. There is no prospect, therefore, of its being brought into force forthwith. A copy of the Bill will be placed in the Library of the House. I do not think this is an occasion on which I should publish correspondence between the Colonial Office and the Governor.
