§ 11. Mr. Fisher
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will make a statement about the constitutional conference on Barbados.
§ Mr. Frederick Lee
The conference is still in progress. I hope to be able to make a statement next week.
§ Mr. Fisher
Will the right hon. Gentleman say whether he favours elections before independence or after independence, bearing in mind that elections are due very shortly in the Colony anyway, as he knows, and that this is a very controversial point both in Barbados at present and, I understand, at his own constitutional conference?
