Figure 1
This photo was taken at Trinidads capital, Port of Spain and was an induction ceremony for the
newest member of the British West Indies federation initiated by Princess Margaret. Seated to the
left of Princess Margaret is the governor general, Lord Hailes. This concludes that the federation
had a semi-colonial style of government as it was still governed by Britain. It shows the lack of
political power of the members of the federation and hence the lack of power to reach selfgovernance.
