ed that whilst every effort will
be made to give the most use-

GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL
PRESS

Accounts have appeared m
the Press in connect-on with
the death of Mr. Lafe Lowe as
a result of a shot fired by a
United States Naval sentry on
the 16th July which suggest
that the Government of the
Bahamas has not interest-
ed itself in the matter in the
way in which it should have
done. It is'pointed out, for the
information of the public, that
when British subjects are in
foreign countries the protec-
tion of their interests is the
responsibility of British repre-
sentatives stationed in those
countries. It is only when there
is reason to believe that Bri-
tish representatives abroad
have not, either through lack
of information, or any other
cause, been able adequately to
protect a British subject's in-
terests that his own Govern-
ment steps in.

In the case of the death of
Mr. Lowe the British Consu-
lar Officers have taken imme-
diate action and H. M. Em-
bassy in Washington have been
requested to secure a copy of
the official U. S. Naval hear-
ing of the tragic Incident. It
will be appreciated that the
matter must remain "sub ju-
dice" until such time as the
United States Naval Authori-
ties have furnished a copy of
the report and of their find-
ings of the investigation, but
there need be no doubt that
justice will be done for the
family of the deceased
