§ Mr. Riley
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the Legislative Council of Jamaica has recently adopted a resolution in favour of a new constitution of the Legislative Council; and whether he can inform the House of the nature of the new constitution, and if the Government has confirmed the proposed change.
§ Mr. George Hall
No information has been received as to the recent adoption by the Legislative Council of Jamaica of a resolution in favour of a new constitution of the Council. The question of whether the constitution of Jamaica is to be amended is among those to be discussed with the Governor during his stay in England.
