This chapter examines British governor to Cyprus Hugh Foot's plan for dealing with the Greek Cypriot revolt. Foot proposed a modified tridominium suggesting that the existing colonial administration should remain in effective control of the island. He believed that shared sovereignty should take the form of an invitation to Greece and Turkey to be partners in the supervision of the island. This chapter discusses the reaction and opinion of Prime Minister Harold Macmillan to Foot's proposals.
