As I stated on 6th November a Senior Official from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office has been in St. Kitts and in Anguilla to hold preliminary discussions on the Report, with both the Government of St. Kitts and with the Anguillan leaders. My right hon. Friend is considering the Report in the light of those discussions.—[Vol. 805, c. 1424–5.]
Now that St. Kitts has apparently accepted the Report and Anguilla has rejected it, as I rather feared, could my right hon. Friend give an indication of his own attitude and whether he hopes to be able to use the Report as a basis for discussion between the two sides, perhaps with himself in the chair?
I am most anxious to get a satisfactory solution of this problem. I am in close touch with both the Government of St. Kitts and the Anguillan leaders. I should like to have time for fuller discussions before making any comment about the position of Her Majesty's Government.
