APPOINTMENT OF NEW Si:CRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES
The following texts of telegrams received on the occasion of the retirement t6
the Secretary of State for the Colonies are published for general information :-
From the retiring Secretary of State :-
It is with keen regret that I lay down the office of the-Secretary of State
for the Colonies. In this three years I have been able to visit many of th.
Colonial Territories and to meet both here and Oversea a large number of
people from all parts of the world. I have been fortunate to make a great
many friends of all races during my term of office, and I have learned much
about the difficult problems and golden opportunities which face you all. All
that I have seen and done has confirmed my deepening faith, wisdom and
rightness of the far-sighted policy for Colonial Territories to which all
parties in Great Britain subscribe. I am certain Social Progress, Economic
Prosperity and Political Advancement will grow and flourish in Colonial
territories if we work together and are patient with each other.
Now I have to say Goodbye and thank you. I know at first hand all the
devoted work which the Colonial Service in all its branches and their many
men and women outside Government service are patiently pursuing. I wish
all of them unqualified success, one of the greatest tasks which can fall to
Statesmen and Administrators. My regret at leaving is only mitigated by
my confidence in my successor. Mr. Lennox-Boyd has served with me as .
Minister of State and he is a true friend of the people of the Colonial
Territories.
I send to you all my warmest thanks and my best wishes for the future."
OLIVER LYTTLETON.
From the new Secretary of State :
Her Majesty the Queen has this day 30th July, entrusted to me the Seal
of the Colonial Department."
ALAN LENNOX-BOYD.
From the new Secretary of State:-
It is a great joy to me to be back at the Colonial Office. I have already
been privileged to be Minister of State and I now enter upon the Office of
Secretary of State for the Colonies profoundly aware of the importance and

diversity of the great work there is for us to do. I know too, the hope and
ambitions of the people of all races with which the well-being of Her
Majesty's Government is charged. This is indeed a heavy responsibility and
impossible for any man to bear were it not supported by a Colonial Service
of the highest tradition of a vast body of men and women whose only aim is
to serve the people of the Colonial Territories. The singleness of purpose
and great force for good is an inspiration to me and I will do all in my
power to forward the happiness and advancement of the Territory which is
our common goal."
ALAN LENNOX-BOYD.

From His Excellency the Governor of the Windward Islands :
On behalf of the Government and peoples of the Windward Islands, I
wish to express our deep appreciation of your heartening message and to
pledge our fullest cooperation in all matters leading to the advancement of
these islands and of the British Caribbean."
