The reply to the first and second parts of the hon. Member's question are in the affirmative. I do not know to what extent publicity has been given in Jamaica to the Report in question, but it was communicated to a local Whitley Committee appointed to advise as to the necessity of regrading public officers' salaries at the present time, and I understand that, on the receipt of the Report of that Committee, which has been published locally, a Commission was appointed to consider the whole question of the remuneration of Government officers in the colony.
