§ 75. Mr. Elwyn Jones
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will cause an inquiry to be made into the state of the law of sedition in the Colonies, with a view, so far as may be practicable, to giving effect in the Colonies to the principles of the English Common Law.
§ Mr. Hopkinson
The laws relating to sedition in Colonial Territories follow, in the main, the principles of the Common Law, and I see no need for the inquiry suggested.
