HC Deb 18 February 1924 vol 169 cc1371-2W

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will give con- sideration to the desire of British Guiana that the Colony should no longer be included for administrative and other purposes among the West Indies group?


Them are a certain number of matters of common concern to both the West Indian Islands and British Guiana in which co-operation is clearly in the interests of all parties. I am not aware of any desire on the part of British Guiana to question this general principle, but I shall always be prepared to give the fullest consideration to any representations that may be made as to its applicability to particular cases.
