HC Deb 10 November 1954 vol 532 c132W
73. Mr. D. Jones

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many village councils have been established on the island of Antigua; and what measure of success has been secured by the village councils which have been operating for some time.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

Thirteen village councils were established in 1946 and 1947. They have unfortunately not been successful. I am, however, glad to say that local institutions are growing up in other ways.
