HC Deb 26 October 1976 vol 918 c173W
Mr. Rose

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he will consult the Prime Minister of Dominica concerning the questions of internal security and the position of the Carib minority, respectively; and whether he is satisfied with the progress now being made.

Mr. Rowlands

My right hon. Friend does not propose to consult with the Premier about these matters. In accordance with the West Indies Act 1967 Her Majesty's Government in the United Kingdom have no responsibility for the government of any associated State except in respect of any matter relating to defence, external affairs, nationality, citizenship, the Succession to the Throne or the Royal Style and Titles.
