§ Mr. Brockway
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies when it is planned to hold the general elections in British Guiana; and by what constitutional means the proposed system of proportional representation will be introduced.
§ Mr. Sandys
As soon as practicable after the necessary preparatory work is completed: I am not yet able to say precisely when this will be. The introduction of proportional representation involves a constitutional change which will require an Order in Council.
