§ 44. Mr. John Hynd
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has now studied the reports on legislation establishing racial discrimination in the Colonies; and if he can now make a statement.
My right hon. Friend has studied the reports and is now in consultation with colonial Governors on various points. He hopes to be able to make a statement before long.
I cannot say offhand whether it will be published in the form of a White Paper. It will certainly be published, and I can certainly say that the House will have an opportunity of discussing it. It is because the Government attach so much importance to it that we are waiting until we can not only publish the report but say, at the same time, what action we propose to take in connection with it.
§ Mr. Fenner Brockway
Will the report be limited to legislation or will it also include the administration of racial discrimination?
