HC Deb 04 October 1944 vol 403 cc918-9
28. Mr. Creech Jones

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what steps are being taken by him to recruit suitable men and women for the political and technical services in British dependencies, in the light of present and post-war needs; whether terms of employment are under revision; and what methods will be employed in the selection of candidates.

The Secretary of State for the Colonies (Colonel Oliver Stanley)

I would refer my hon. Friend to the official announcement on post-war recruitment to the Colonial Service which appeared in the Press on 16th September. The arrangements for reopening recruitment after the defeat of Germany are well advanced, and detailed information about them and about the method of application and selection will be published shortly in pamphlets which will be widely circulated both in this country and among the Armed Forces serving overseas.
