§ Mr. RHYS DAVIES
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies the grounds for his refusal to accede to the request made by Indians resident in Fiji for a common electoral roll; and what further steps does he propose to take in the matter?
§ Sir P. CUNLIFFE-LISTER
I understand that the movement for a common694W electoral roll in Fiji has been supported in the Legislative Council by the Indian Members alone, and that there is no general desire in the Colony for such an amendment of the Constitution. I see no grounds, as at present advised, for further action on my part.
