HC Deb 28 March 1945 vol 409 c1397W
Colonel Lyons

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, with a view to accelerating day-to-day decisions and giving more responsibility to leading officials, he will now consider, in the case of a few selected Colonies, the replacement of the secretariat by a cabinet system of officials or nominated members, each personally responsible for his Department to the Governor.

Colonel Stanley

I have this matter under consideration, but I am not in a position to make a statement at present.
