SOLOMON ISLANDS, TUVALU AND KIRIBATI (INDEPENDENCE GIFTS)

The Vice-Chamberlain of the Household reported Her Majesty's Answer to the Address, as follows:

I have received your Address praying that I will give directions that there be presented on behalf of your House a gift of a clock to the national Parliament of Solomon Islands and gifts of gavel sets to the Houses of Assembly of Tuvalu and Kiribati, and assuring me that your House will make good the expenses attending the same.

It gave me great pleasure to learn that your House desires to make such presentations and I will gladly give directions for carrying your proposals into effect.
