HC Deb 09 July 1959 vol 608 c148W
Mr. Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how long, on average, it takes for him to send a request to the Governor of the Leeward Islands for ordinary routine information of a non-technical and office record character, and to receive the reply.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

The time taken varies according to the nature of the information which is sought and the extent to which its assembly calls for consultation between the Governor of the Leeward Islands, who normally resides in Antigua, and the Administrators in the other islands.
