41. Mr. Creech Jones

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether consideration is being given in British Guiana, Dominica, Malta and Trans-Jordan to the enactment of trade union legislation with a view to these territories complying with the requirements of the Colonial Development and Welfare Act?

As stated in my reply to my hon. Friend's Question on 5th May, the preparation of the necessary amending legislation has been put in hand in British Guiana, Dominica and Malta. I am taking up the question of trade union legislation in Trans-Jordan with the High Commissioner.
