§ Mr. McEntee
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what is the object of the offer of the Governor of Seychelles to exchange land on Mahé for Felicité Island; and what use is to be made of this island if acquired?
§ Sir T. Inskip
I have been asked to reply. The hon. Member no doubt refers to the invitation recently published by the Governor for tenders of land on Mahé in exchange for the lease of Felicit6 Island, which is the property of the Government. Amongst other purposes, land on Mahé is required by the Government for settlement schemes.
