51. Mr. F. M. Bennett

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will now state whether a final decision has been made concerning Canada's participation in the Economic Mission which he proposes to send to the Leeward and Windward Islands.

Mr. H. Fraser

I am pleased to report that the Canadian Government have asked to be associated with the joint United Kingdom and United States Economic Mission to the Leeward and Windward Islands which my right hon. Friend announced to the House in his statement on 19th June. Her Majesty's Government warmly welcome this evidence of continuing Canadian interest in the West Indies.
