HC Deb 05 May 1954 vol 527 cc23-4W
60. Mr. Russell

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what progress is being made in improving shipping services in the British West Indies.

Mr. Hopkinson

Last October, the Governments of the British Caribbean territories issued a public invitation to shipping operators to tender for the pro-vision of regular inter-island services. The tenders received are now under detailed examination by the colonial Governments concerned.
