Oral Answers to Questions — Barbados (Sentence on Native). (16 Mar 1938)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: It would be improper for me to comment on a sentence passed by a Judge on a decision by a jury, and as the exercise of the prerogative of mercy does not lie with me, but under the Constitution rests solely with the Governor, it would be highly improper for me to intervene.
