asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is satisfied that arrangements are satisfactory respecting the future position of West Indians affected by the lease of naval bases in the West Indies, particularly in regard to the preservation of social customs and the improvement of economic conditions?

Yes, Sir. I am confident that the United States authorities will do all they can to minimise any disturbance in the normal life of the community.
