asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware that in Rodriguez the post of Director of Agriculture has been vacant for a considerable time; that the official at present acting in that capacity is receiving only half the salary attached to that post; and when it is proposed to make an appointment to fill the vacancy?

My Noble Friend has received no information as to a vacancy in the post of Agricultural Superintendent in Rodriquez. The post of Director of Agriculture, Mauritius, is at present vacant and it is hoped that it will be filled shortly.
