HC Deb 20 December 1927 vol 212 cc241-2W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he can give any information with regard to the appointment of a local commission in British Guiana for the purpose of reducing the status of British Guiana to that of a Crown Colony; and, if so, under what authority has the Commission been appointed?


I would refer the hon. Member to the Report of the local Commission which has been published as a Command Paper (Cmd. 2985), and which states that the Commission was appointed by the Governor on the instructions of the Secretary of State.
