HC Deb 17 October 1945 vol 414 c1192W
Mr. H. Hynd

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what is now the position regarding the franchise in British Guiana; and whether it will be possible to extend full adult suffrage to this Colony.

Mr. George Hall

Local legislation is being passed to implement the recommendations of the British Guiana Franchise Commission for the reduction of the franchise qualifications. With my approval the Governor has recently made a statement, a copy of which I am sending to my hon. Friend.
