HC Deb 28 January 1959 vol 598 c126W
136. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations if he will take steps to invite the independent realms in the Commonwealth to a conference to consider its present and future constitutional development, with special regard to possible new entrants and to territories like Guinea, in view of its recent agreement with Ghana.

Mr. Profumo

I have been asked to reply.

No. This would not be in accordance with long-established practice. The constitutional development of the Commonwealth is a continuing process which is kept under constant review through the existing channels of consultation between the member countries.
