HC Deb 28 June 1971 vol 820 c26W
97. Mr. Marten

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what proposals the British Government put to the Anguillan leaders; and what reply he received.

Mr. Godber

The basis of the proposals I have made to the Government of the Associated State and to the Anguilla Council is that Her Majesty's Commissioner should be given adequate powers to establish a satisfactory administration for a period of years in Anguilla, in consultation and co-operation with the people of Anguilla. The Anguilla Council have accepted these proposals. The State Government have not felt able to do so.
