MISCELLANEOUS.

BRITISH COLONIAL POLICY.

The following statement which was
made in the House of Commons on the
14th November, 1951, by the Right
Honourable the Secretary of State for
the Colonies is published for general
information:-
"Certain broad lines of policy are
accepted by all sections of the House
as being above party politics. These
have been clearly stated by my pre-
decessors from both main parties.
Two of them are fundamental. First,
we all aim at helping Colonial Terri-
tories to attain self-government with-
in the British Commonwealth. To
that end we are seeking, as rapidly as
possible, to build up in each territory
the institutions which its circum-
stances require. Secondly, we are all
determined to pursue the economic
and social development of 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 these aims. We
desire to see successful constitutional
development both in those territories
which are less advanced towards self-
government, and in addition, those
with more advanced constitutions.
His Majesty's Government will do
their utmost to help Colonial Govern-
ments and Legislatures to foster the
health, wealth, and happiness of
Cololnial peoples.
