§ 5. Mr. Brockway
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what reply has been made to the memorandum from the Government of Trinidad requesting full internal self-government for Trinidad, independence for the West Indian Federation, and the return of the base at Chaguaramas and other areas leased to the United States of America.
§ Mr. Iain Macleod
I assume that the hon. Member refers to a memorial approved by the General Council of the People's National Movement and adopted at a public meeting on the 22nd April. I have been sent a copy of this memorial, apparently as an expression of public sentiment in some quarters in Trinidad on the several issues mentioned. I have asked that the authors of the memorial should be informed that its contents have been noted.
