HC Deb 21 April 1948 vol 449 c1806
40. Mr. Skinnard

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if the Committee reporting on a new Constitution for Trinidad has completed its work; when it will be possible for its proposals to be made public; and if the proposals received the unanimous support of the Committee.

Mr. Mayhew

The Committee has now submitted its report to the Governor. I understand that of the 20 members 17 have signed the majority report. One of the remaining three has submitted a minority report. I understand that it is hoped to present the reports to the Legislative Council before it goes into recess next month, and that a debate on constitutional reform is expected to take place in Legislative Council on 30th April.

Forward to
