§ 61. Mr. Erroll
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will make a statement on the disturbances in the sugar industry in Jamaica.
§ Mr. Hopkinson
There have been no disturbances. Some stoppages of work have taken place in particular areas for special or local reasons. All sugar factories are now working. Negotiations on a wage claim were recently opened between the unions concerned and the Sugar Manufacturers' Association, and I understand that they are being continued.
