§ 8. Mr. MORRIS
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, seeing that there are now seven governors for a community of 2,000,000 people in the British West Indies, he will consider the desirability of one governor-general being appointed for all the islands and 6 possessions in that area, with a senate house composed of representatives from each colony?
§ 11. Commander BELLAIRS
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, in view of the successful economies effected in both large cities and small towns in America by the substitution of a business director for the local government, and in order to relieve the present financial stress, he will take steps to enable any of the small island communities of the West Indies to substitute this system for the present governments presided over by governors or administrators?
§ Commander BELLAIRS
Would it not be possible to have that system should the Islands express a desire to have it, seeing that it has been successful in great cities like Cleveland, Ohio, with a population bigger than the whole of the West Indies?
