1. Mr. Creech Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether His Majesty's Government have given consideration to the early introduction in Newfoundland of some measure of responsible government?
§ The Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs (Mr. Eden)
The position remains as explained to the hon. Member in the replies given to him by my predecessor on 14th February and 28th March last, to which I have at present nothing to add.
Mr. Creech Jones
In view of the continued economic depression and the recent expressions of loyalty by the inhabitants of Newfoundland, is it not possible to create some machinery of an advisory character?
§ Mr. McGovern
Would it not be a splendid gesture to restore Parliamentary government in Newfoundland, and show Hider, by leaflet, that while he is taking Parliamentary government away we are beginning to extend it again?
