§ 42. Mr. Mathers
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies how many times the British Guiana Franchise Commission has met; what progress it has made with its task; and whether, in view of public statements made by the new Governor, it is intended to introduce a more advanced Constitution into the Colony than the one previously outlined?
§ Mr. Harold Macmillan
As regards the first two parts of the Question, I can add nothing to the reply given to my hon. Friend on 17th December. As regards the third part, I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given to the hon. Member for Shipley (Mr. Creech Jones) on 18th March.
§ Mr. Mathers
Is it not desirable that the Colonial Office should get in touch with the Governor of this Colony, in order to set this Commission on right lines and get a satisfactory report?
