§ 84. Mr. Russell
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he is satisfied that adequate precautions exist to deal with any outbreak of violence in British Guiana; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Hopkinson
Yes. There has been no violent reaction to the publication of the report of the Constitutional Commission, and the situation in the Colony generally is quiet at present. I am, however, by no means complacent about the underlying position which must be improved considerably before there can be any relaxation of our precautions.
