Government Notices.

Administrator's Office,
15th November. 1951.
THI-: following statement made by the
Secretary of State for the Colonies in the
House of Cornmmonson the 14th November,
1951, in reply to a question, is published
for general information:-
"Certain broad lines of policy are
accepted by all sections (f the House as
being above party politics. These have
been clearly stated by my predecessors
from both main parties.
Two of them are fundamental First
we all aim at helping Colonial Territories
to attain Self-goverment within the British
Commonwealth. To that end we are
seeking as rapidly as possible to build up
in each territory the institutions which
circumstances require. Second we are all
determined to pursue economic and social
development in the Colonial Territories so
that it may keep pace with their political
development.
I should like to make it plain at the
outset that His Majesty's Government
intends no change in the these aims. We
desire to see successful constitutional
development both in those territories
which are less advanced towards self-gov.
ernment and in those with more advanced
constitutions. His Majesty's Government
will ao their utmost to help Colonial Gov.
ernments and Legislatures to foster the
health, wealth and happiness of colonial
peoples.
I hope however much there may from
time to time be disagreement between us
on details, all parties will be with me in
agreeing on those ends."
By Command,
L. ACHILLE PINARD,
Government Secretary
