§ 54. Mr. Swingler
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if Her Majesty's Government will give an assurance that they will be governed by the result of the referendum in Malta on the majority recommendations of the Round Table Conference in favour of integration with the United Kingdom.
§ Mr. Hare
I have nothing to add to the Answer which my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Colonies gave to the hon. Member for Preston, North (Mr. J. Amery) on 3rd February. As was then made clear, there are a number of relevant factors, including of course the result of the referendum which will have to be carefully weighed.
