HC Deb 27 February 1912 vol 34 cc1331-2W

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will state what is the present position of affairs in regard to the movement for the unification of the various British possessions in the West Indies and South America?


I am not aware of the existence of any movement for the unification of the British West Indies. Various proposals for federating the West

Indian Colonies have from time to time been put forward for discussion. I need hardly say that any scheme which meets with the general approval of the communities concerned will command my most attentive consideration.
