The United States and the United Kingdom dele-
gation reaffirmed their continuing interest in assis-
ing towards the economic development and stability
of the West Indies during difficult period following
attainment of independence.
It was agreed that the second stage of the con-
fe-ence would consist of a series of talks to be held
in Trinidad and Tobago, We;, Indies in which the
United States holds bases under agreement. In
that series of talks each individual of territorial
Government will appear in its own right to present
its cwn views. The Federal Government will be
represented at all df these talks.
It was decided that the talks in the second stage
would be held in'Trinidad and Tobago on the:
i 1 nd of Tobago 28th November. It ia intended
thit subsequent meetings be held in St. Lucia,
A :tigua and Jamaica.
