HC Deb 27 July 1931 vol 255 cc1963-4W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, in view of the fact that the Governor of Mauritius has publicly recommended to the attention of the residents the issue of a publication called the "Crown Colonist," any Department of State is in any way financially assisting this publication; whether it is to be regarded as the official publication of the Colonial Office; and, if not, why instructions have been sent to Crown Colony Governors to recommend it to the residents?


As regards the first part of my hon. Friend's question I have no information. The "Crown Colonist" is not in any way an official publication, and no instructions concerning it have been sent to any of the Colonial Governors.
