HC Deb 11 June 1947 vol 438 cc105-6W
61. Commander Noble

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will make a statement on the West Indian Conference to be held in Jamaica in September.

Mr. Creech Jones

I assume that the hon. and gallant Member refers to the forthcoming Conference on the Closer Association of the British West Indian Colonies. A full account of the origin and purposes of that conference has already been published in a Command Paper which is now available in the Vote Office. I have no further statement to make at the moment.
