HC Deb 09 November 1961 vol 648 cc85-6W
64. Mr. Chapman

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies on what date he communicated the proposed con tents of the Commonwealth Immigrants Bill to the Prime Minister of the West Indies.

Mr. Maudling

I was in communication with the Prime Minister of the West Indies about this matter well before the Bill was published. Copies of the Bill were sent to the Government of the West Indies immediately after publication.
