63. Mr. G. M. Thomson

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what agreement he reached with the Premier of British Guiana during his recent visit to London, regarding financial assistance and a firm date for the next constitutional conference.

Mr. Maudling

Her Majesty's Government are prepared to make available this year up to a further £650,000 of Exchequer Loans towards British Guiana's development expenditure. On the second part of the Question I have nothing to add to my reply of 8th May, to my hon. Friend the Member for Reading (Mr. Peter Emery).
