Constitutional Planning Committee

Established by the House of Assembly in 1972, the Constitutional Planning Committee (CPC) considered the timing of self-government and Independence, regional interests, and control of foreign investment, as well as the development of the Constitution. The CPC became part of a personal power struggle among parliamentary leaders in the three years before Independence and some of its more radical recommendations were rejected by the House of Assembly.
