§ 67. Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies to make a statement on the subjects he discussed and conclusions reached in Cyprus during his recent visit there.
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
During my brief stay in Cyprus I talked to the Governor and his Executive Council, and to many people of all communities, including the Archbishop and the Mufti. I saw representatives of agriculture, commerce and industry and the trade unions. My discussions ranged over the whole field of major problems facing the Colony. I am sure that the House will not expect me to report any summary conclusions on these complex problems, but I believe the visit will not be without value at any rate to myself in carrying out my responsibilities towards Cyprus in the months that lie ahead.
