§ Mr. Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies on what date he first communicated with the Governor of the Leeward Islands on the matter concerning Charles Payne, of Forest Gate; on what date he received a reply; and on how many occasions he made contact with the Governor relative to this subject.
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
As I have already informed the hon. Member by letter, I wrote to the Governor of the Leeward Islands and to the Administrator in Montserrat on this subject on 14th May. A reply was received from the Administrator on 10th June. I found it necessary to consult the Administrator again by telegram before providing the hon. Member with the information for which he had asked.
