I am sure that in the months to come we shall all feel a sense of great personal loss as we...

Orders of the Day — British Caribbean Federation (26 Jul 1957)

Orders of the Day — British Caribbean Federation (26 Jul 1957)

Mr Roland Robinson: I quite understand, but I think that a fairer picture is painted by pointing out that there are a great many ships ploughing backwards and forwards. We should not make the picture too black by saying that one ship, and one only, does a circular tour. I have said that we should do everything we can to strengthen the West Indies Federation. In my opinion, the Federation will be strengthened in...
