LORD ST. OSWALD
My Lords, on behalf of my noble friend Lord Perth, I beg leave to introduce a Bill to enable provision to be made for the cesser of the inclusion of colonies in the Federation established under the British Caribbean Federation Act, 1956, and for the dissolution of that Federation and for matters consequential on the happening of either of those events; to enable provision to be made for the establishment of common courts and other authorities for, and fresh provision to be made for the government of, certain West Indian colonies; to enable provision to be made for the establishment of new forms of government for combinations of such colonies; and for purposes connected with the matters aforesaid. I beg to move that the Bill be now read a first time.
§ Moved, That the Bill be now read 1a.—(Lord St. Oswald.)
§ On Question, Bill read 1a; and to be printed.
