§ Mr. D. Jones
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has considered the desire expressed by the President of the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce in June last, details of which have been sent to him, that a Labour Relations Committee should be established in British Guiana; that such a body could assist to maintain industrial peace in the territory; and what steps he proposes to take to bring about this improvement in industrial relations in this colonial territory.
§ Mr. Lyttelton
I understand that the proposal is that the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce should set up a Labour Relations Committee to act as an employer's federation in negotiations with labour. The formation of such a Committee is, therefore, a matter for the Chamber of Commerce, which is still considering the suggestion.
