HC Deb 20 April 1959 vol 604 cc12-3W
93. Mr. Brockway

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what representations have been received protesting against the renomination of Mr. Ah-Chuen to the Legislative Council of Mauritius, as a representative of the Chinese community; and what decision has been made.

Mr. Amery

Various representations were made purporting to show that Mr. Ah-Chuen was not well thought of as a nominated Member of Legislative Council. The Governor considered these most carefully, but as Mr. Ah-Chuen had obtained the highest number of votes cast for a Sino-Mauritian candidate in the recent elections and no good grounds had been produced to show that he was unsuitable for the position in Legislative Council which he had held since 1948, the Governor decided to appoint him again.
