There have been two moves to mediate, one by the Caribbean Congress of Labour and one by the Caribbean Congress of Churches. I have seen reports that the efforts to mediate by the Caribbean Congress of Churches did not make much progress. I am waiting for further reports about the other attempt at mediation.

On the question of the other Caribbean Governments mediating, the decision must be for them, but I do not believe that they disagree with the views and the action of Her Majesty's Government in the matter.
