§ 20. Mr. H. WILLIAMS
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the Colonial civil servants employed in the Crown Colonies, Protectorates, and territories mandated to the United Kingdom and the civil servants employed in territories mandated to British Dominions are deemed to be engaged in a common service for the purpose of promotion?
§ Mr. AMERY
The answer is in the negative. The conditions of service of civil servants employed in territories mandated to the Dominions are entirely 1586 under the control of the respective Dominion Governments, and though I should be glad to facilitate interchange so far as possible if it were desired, I do not think that a common service would be practicable. I might add that the Colonial civil servants referred to in the earlier part of the question, whilst not deemed to be engaged in a common service, are in many cases interchanged from time to time.
