asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he has completed his inquiries into the immediate plans of the Governor of the Leeward Islands to proceed with under-water boring for oil along the coast of these islands; what will be the approximate cost of this project over the next five years; and when boring is to commence.
Is not this, if anything, even more extraordinary than what the right hon. Gentleman said on the last Question? If the Governor has immediate plans for boring for oil how can the right hon. Gentleman have no idea what it will cost? It is simply amazing.
