25. Air Commodore Harvey
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many police lieutenants have been approved for the Malayan establishment; and how many have arrived in Malaya.
Air Commodore Harvey
In the light of the present difficulties of South-East Asia generally, does the right hon. Gentleman think that the figure is high enough, and will he say when the remainder of those to go are expected to arrive?
§ Mr. Griffiths
The question of whether the total figure is sufficient has been considered in recent talks I have had. We are doing everything we possibly can to fill all the vacancies as quickly as possible.
