§ Mr. G. M. Thomson
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what steps he is taking to obtain the views of the people of the Turks and Caicos Islands about the future political and economic structure of that territory.
§ Mr. Sandys
Two Colonial Office officials are now in the Turks and Caicos Islands investigating the financial and economic problems. They will have the opportunity of meeting the local government and members of the local community. I am at present seeking the views by correspondence of the Turks and Caicos Government about future political progress.
