The Minister has learnt with satisfaction that the Chevalier de Jobal and Monsieur Roume de St Laurent have been able to settle their differences in the face of the serious events now taking place in Tobago and the critical times to which France itself, is exposed.
The Minister has directed the Committee which had been formed to enquire into and report on these mutual complaints, to cease any further consideration of the matter.
