Click here for the pdf file.

In the period 1964-1973 the Special Committee urged the Administering Power to speed up the transfer of executive responsibilities to the elected representatives of the people of the Solomon Islands. It also expressed frequent concern at the slow pace of educational, social and economic development in the Territory, and called on the United Kingdom to accelerate progress in those fields.

The advent of responsible government to the Territory in 1974 and of self-government in 1976 was welcomed by the Special Committee which also declared itself encouraged by the speedier pace of social and economic development in the islands.
