HC Deb 26 March 1941 vol 370 cc563-4
19. Mr. Creech Jones

asked the Under secretary of State for the Colonies whether, in view of African dissatisfaction with the appointment of British inspectors of police in Nigeria, it is proposed in future to afford Africans the opportunity of appointment as inspectors?

Mr. George Hall

In general the opportunities for replacing British by African staff have recently increased. I am not fully informed of the position as regards the superior posts in the Nigerian Police; but I am asking the Governor for a report.
