§ Mrs. Hart
I have received further reports of the referendum in Anguilla to which I referred in my Answer of 13th July. The announcement of the result on 11th July was immediately followed by a proclamation of Anguillans independence, which was communicated to me.
I have arranged for a First Secretary to be attached temporarily to the staff of the British Government Representative in the Associated States. He will be stationed for the present in St. Kitts with the object of looking after British interests in the territory.—[Vol. 750, c. 138.]
