§ 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.
