HC Deb 28 March 1945 vol 409 c1369
79. Mr. Driberģ

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he has considered the statement on the colour bar and racial discrimination issued by the Conference of Missionary Societies in Great Britain and Ireland and circulated to all hon. Members; and if he will endeavour to promote throughout the Colonial Empire the observance of the principles outlined in this document.

Colonel Stanley

Yes, Sir. I have read this document. The general principles outlined in it form the basis of the policy of His Majesty's Government, which, as I have often stated, is to do all in their power to secure equal treatment irrespective of colour for all the inhabitants of the Colonial Empire.
