Alert me about debates like this
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he can report any progress in the policy of establishing a customs union, or federation of the West Indies.
The Customs Union Commission has been at work since January, and the Standing Closer Association Committee has held three meetings. I understand that these bodies hope to report in October.
Is there any chance of an official decision being reached on this matter when the Minister of State for Colonial Affairs, Lord Listowel, goes to the West Indies next November?
I have no doubt that this matter will be one of the things discussed at the meeting.
