Yes, Sir. The British co-Chairman is Sir Frank Stockdale, the Comptroller for Development and Welfare in the West Indies. The other two British members of the Commission are appointed ad hoc on the occasion of each meeting of the Commission according to the particular subjects to be discussed. The two members appointed for the first meeting were Sir Rupert Briercliffe, the medical adviser to the Comptroller, and Mr. Caine, of the Economic Department of the Colonial Office.

May I take it that the Commission has now commenced its work satisfactorily?
