§ The Under-Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs (Mr. Edward Rowlands)
Constitutional advances have been or are being introduced in Montserrat, Anguilla, the British Virgin Islands and Turks and Caicos. The Premiers of the West Indies Associated States recently agreed amongst themselves that they should seek full independence at an early date. Preliminary discussions on this are now taking place with the Premiers.
§ Mr. Rowlands
The Anguilla constitution is now in force. If there are any further discussions about independence 1265 for St. Kitts and Nevis, the question of Anguilla will have to be taken into account and the wishes of the islanders will be respected.
