§ 43. Sir G. Fox
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies the last two occasions on which the Governor of Mauritius visited the Dependency of Rodriguez; what method of transport was used in each case; and whether he is satisfied with the present shipping facilities.
Mr. Creech Jones
The last two occasions on which the Governor of Mauritius personally visited the Island of Rodriguez were July, 1931, in H.M.S. "Effingham," and September, 1935, in a ship of a Dutch Line. Other senior officers, however, visit the island frequently. The present shipping facilities between Mauritius and Rodriguez are not very satisfactory, but means of improving them are being negotiated.
