HC Deb 01 March 1946 vol 419 c442W
Dr. Morgan

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is yet in a position to disclose the officially agreed plans for the amalgamation of the British colonies in the Windward and Leeward groups of islands; whether these proposals will be publicly announced and submitted for discussion in the local legislative councils; and whether opportunities for further extension of federal services are provided, such as radio, transport and communications, etc.

Mr. Creech Jones

I hope shortly to place before the Governors of the Leeward Islands and the Windward Islands proposals for the closer union of the two groups. It is the intention that these proposals shall be pulished locally with a view to discussion by the Legislative Councils and other interested persons. Such discussion would naturally cover the question of common services such as radio, transport and communication facilities.
