20. Mr. Creech Jones
asked the Under secretary of State for the Colonies what steps have recently been taken or are being taken to improve inter-communication between the British West Indian Colonies?
§ Mr. George Hall
Although the need for improved inter-island sea transport in the West Indies is fully realised, it has not been possible in time of war to proceed with improvements. A British air service is now operating between Trinidad, Tobago and Barbados. It is hoped to arrange for this service to be extended to other West Indian Islands, but I regret that I am not yet in a position to make a statement on the subject.
