§ 44. Mr. Riley
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the Comptroller, set up under the Colonial Development and Welfare Act, 1940, for the West Indies, will in future carry on his work in co-operation with, or independent of, the newly formed Anglo-American Committee for the progress and development of territories in the Caribbean Sea?
§ Mr. Harold Macmillan
The Comptroller for Development and Welfare in the West Indies will continue to act independently, 1504 but the establishment of the Anglo-American Caribbean Commission will facilitate co-operation between the two Governments, as opportunity offers, in matters affecting progress and development in the Caribbean area.
§ Mr. Macmillan
Yes, Sir, but we must await the first meeting of the Commission. This matter and other matters will have to be considered as we proceed.
