asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he is aware of the anxiety in the British West Indian Colonies, British Guiana and British Honduras, that an abrogation or modification of the Ottawa Agreement may be made without consultation with the Colonial Governments; and will he give an assurance that no such action will be taken without consultation with the Colonial Governments.
