asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies to what extent cost of living allowances have recently been made to Government employees in Trinidad; and why the establishment of a Civil Service Whitley Council has been refused?

The Governor recently submitted proposals for increasing the existing war bonus paid to civil servants and teachers in Trinidad. His proposals are now being considered. As regards the second part of the Question it was stated recently in the Trinidad Press that the formation of a council had been sanctioned and I am asking the Governor for a report.
