    Background: LAST WEEK, THE GAMBIAN HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES MET FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE THE COUNTRY ACHIEVED FULL INTERNAL SELF-GOVERNMENT ON OCTOBER 4TH. IT WAS A MOMENT OF CONSIDERABLE TRIUMPH FOR THE PRIME MINISTER, MR. DAVID JAWARA, WHO NEGOTIATED THIS LATEST ADVANCE IN CONSTITUTIONAL DEVELOPMENT, FOR BRITAIN'S OLDEST COLONY IN AFRICA. HE PLEDGED THAT INDEPENDENCE WOULD COME AS SOON REALISTICALLY POSSIBLE.

    THE FOLLOWING DAY A UNITED NATIONS COMMISSION ARRIVED IN BATHURST. THE COMMISSION WILL LOOK INTO THE POSSIBILITY OF A FUTURE ASSOCIATION BETWEEN GAMBIA AND SENEGAL, WHICH GAINED INDEPENDENCE FROM FRANCE THREE YEARS AGO. THE COMMISSION'S REPORT, EXPECTED AFTER CHRISTMAS, WILL BE SUBMITTED TO THE BRITISH, GAMBIAN AND SENEGALESE GOVERNMENTS, BUT IS NOT BINDING ON ANY OF THEM.

    NOW MR. JAWARA HAS GAINED FULL AUTHORITY AT HOME, HIS HAND WILL BE STRENGTHENED IN FUTURE NEGOTIATIONS WITH SENEGAL.
