asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware that attempts are being made by broadcasts from Guatemala to subvert the loyalty of the people of British Honduras; and what steps he proposes to take.

Yes. These broadcasts are greatly resented in British Honduras, and I have received a strong and unanimous protest about them from the unofficial members of the Executive Council of the Colony. I am confident that the people of the Colony will not be moved by these attacks from their traditional loyalty to the Crown; Her Majesty's Government will continue to give the Colony every support in its political and economic development.
