These changes accelerated with such force in the s that they ushered in a new era of modern politics. The Colonial Report for stated that "contracts for the purchase of mahogany and chicle, which form the mainstay of the Colony, practically ceased altogether, thereby throwing a large number of the woodcutters and chicle-gatherers out of work".
On top of this economic disaster, the worst hurricane in the country's recent history demolished Belize Town on 10 Septemberkilling more than 1, people and destroying at least three-quarters of the housing. The British relief response was tardy and inadequate. The British government seized the opportunity to impose tighter control on the colony and endowed the Governor with reserve powers, or the power to enact laws in emergency situations without the consent of the Legislative Council. The Legislative Council resisted but eventually passed a resolution agreeing to give the Governor reserve powers to obtain disaster aid.

Brown, the expatriate manager of the company, in the first elections for some of the Legislative Council seats in After the elections, the Governor promptly appointed Brown to the council, presumably to maintain the influence of what had for so long been the colony's chief business.
But Brown's defeat by Turton, one of the company's chief local business rivals, marked the decline of old British enterprises in relation to the rising Creole entrepreneurs with their United States commercial connections.

High voter-eligibility standards for property and income limited the belmpan to the wealthiest 2 percent of the population.

It was a decade during which the old phenomena of exploitative labour conditions and authoritarian colonial and industrial relations began to give way to new labour and political processes and institutions. Between andless than 2 percent of the population elected six members in the Legislative Council of thirteen members. In only voters were registered in a population of over 63, The proportion of voters increased slightly inpartly because the minimum age for women voters was reduced from thirty to twenty-one years. The devaluation of the British Honduras dollar in effectively reduced the property and income voter-eligibility standards. Finally, in British Honduras achieved suffrage for all literate adults as a result of the emerging independence movement.
This development was a prelude to the process of constitutional decolonisation. The Nationalist Movement Belize The origins of the independence movement also lay in the s and s. Three groups played important roles in the colony's politics during this period. One group consisted of working-class individuals and emphasised labour issues. The second group, a radical nationalist movement, emerged during World War II. The third group consisted of people such as the Christian Social Action Group CSAG who engaged in electoral politics within the narrow limits defined by the constitution and whose goals included a "Natives First" campaign and an extension of the franchise to elect a more representative government.
One member of this group, George Cadle Pricetopped the polls in the election when he opposed immigration schemes and import controls and rode a wave of feeling against a British proposal for a federation of its colonies in the Caribbean. Price was an eclectic and pragmatic politician whose ideological position was often obscured under a cloak of religious values and quotations. He remained the predominant politician in the country from the early s until his retirement in The event that precipitated Price's political career and the formation of the PUP, was the devaluation of the British Honduras dollar on 31 December In Septemberthe British government devalued the British pound sterling.
In spite of repeated denials by the Governor that the British Honduras dollar would be devalued to maintain the old exchange rate with the British pound, devaluation was nevertheless effected by the Governor, using his reserve powers in defiance of the Legislative Council. The Governor's action angered the nationalists because it reflected the limits of the legislature and revealed the extent of the colonial administration's power. The devaluation enraged labour because it protected the interests of the big transnationals, such as the Belize Estate and Produce Company, whose trade in British pounds would have suffered without devaluation while it subjected British Honduras's working class, already experiencing widespread unemployment and poverty, to higher prices for goods—especially food—imported from the United States.
Devaluation thus united labour, nationalists and the Creole middle classes in opposition to the colonial administration. On the night that the Governor declared the devaluation, the People's Committee was formed and the nascent independence movement suddenly matured. The GWU was the only mass organisation of working people, so the early success of the independence movement would have been impossible without the support of this union. On 28 Aprilthe middle-class members of the People's Committee formerly members of the CSAG took over the leadership of the union and gave Betson the dubious honorific title of "patriarch of the union".
Rise of the PUP[ edit ] Main article: People's United Party Between andthe People's United Party consolidated its organisation, established its popular base, and articulated its primary demands. Belize Billboard editors Philip Goldson and Leigh Richardson were prominent members of the PUP, and gave the party their full support through anti-colonial editorials. The political leaders took control of the union to use its strength, and in turn the union movement declined as it became increasingly dependent upon politicians in the s. In short, PUP pushed for representative and responsible government. The colonial administration, alarmed by the growing support for the PUP, retaliated by attacking two of the party's chief public platforms.
Then, in October, the Governor charged Belize Billboard publishers and owners, including Richardson and Goldson, with sedition. The Governor jailed them for twelve months with hard labour. Soon after, PUP leader John Smith resigned because the party would not agree to fly the British flag at public meetings. The removal of three of four chief leaders was a blow to the party, but the events left Price in a powerful position. In he comfortably topped the polls in Belize City Council elections. Within just two years, despite persecution and division, the PUP had become a powerful political force, and George Price had clearly become the party's leader.
The Governor and the National Party failed in their attempts to discredit the PUP on the issue of its contacts with Guatemala, which was then ruled by the democratic, reformist government of president Jacobo Arbenz. When voters went to the polls on 28 Aprilin the first election under universal literate adult suffrage, the main issue was clearly colonialism—a vote for the PUP was a vote in favour of self-government. Almost 70 percent of the electorate voted. The PUP gained Further constitutional reform was unequivocally on the agenda. Belizean—Guatemalan territorial dispute British Honduras faced two obstacles to independence: British reluctance until the early s to allow citizens to govern themselves, and Guatemala 's complete intransigence over its long-standing claim to the entire territory.
