Captain A. EVANS
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he has had an opportunity of considering the recent Report on the financial and trading conditions in the Seychelle Islands; and what action the Government propose to take?
Mr. M. MacDONALD
Yes, Sir. The Report has been discussed with the new Governor of Seychelles who sailed yesterday to take up his appointment. Further action will be deferred until he has arrived in the Colony and has had time to make considered recommendations.
