HC Deb 01 March 1928 vol 214 c604
49. Mr. HURD

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he has yet conferred with the elective representatives of the Court of Policy of British Guiana who are now in this country; and with what result?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Mr. Amery)

I met the Elected Members' Delegation on the 18th February, and, after hearing them, informed them that I adhered to the decision that the Constitution must be modified so as to secure ultimate control to the Secretary of State; that a Bill to enable a new Constitution to be enacted would be introduced into Parliament forthwith; and that I should be prepared to consider very carefully their suggestions with regard to the details of the new Constitution.
