HC Deb 05 May 1960 vol 622 c87W
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.
