HC Deb 08 May 1962 vol 659 c190
9. Mr. Fisher

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether a pension is to be paid to the Prime Minister of the West Indies when he retires upon the dissolution of the Federation.

Mr. Maudling

Yes Sir. Such provision has been made in the laws of the Federation.

Mr. Fisher

Without asking my right hon. Friend to go into the details of the amount and so on, may I express the appreciation of both sides of the House at this recognition of Sir Grantley Adams's long record of public service in the West Indies, to which I am sure we would all wish to pay tribute?
