HC Deb 26 January 1955 vol 536 c35W
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.
