HC Deb 12 December 1961 vol 651 c28W
49. Mr. C. Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what measure of constitutional reform is now proposed for St. Helena; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Maudling

My predecessor's offer to replace the present nominated Advisory Council with one consisting of half elected and half nominated or official members still stands and will be introduced if I can be assured that these proposals are generally acceptable.
