HC Deb 26 October 1955 vol 545 c197
51. Mr. G. Longden

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies from what sources civil servants are in the future to be recruited by the Government of Malaya.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

Vacancies in the public services in the Federation of Malaya are filled by Malayans whenever suitable candidates with the requisite qualifications are available. When no such candidates are available, the Federation Government normally request me to recruit candidates on their behalf from the United Kingdom and Commonwealth countries. No change in this policy is at present contemplated.
