HC Deb 26 October 1955 vol 545 c191
19. Mr. John Hall

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if the police force of Sierra Leone has now been increased.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

The establishment of superior officers has increased from twenty-six to thirty-four. It is hoped to recruit another hundred constables this year. I understand further increases are to be included in the 1956 Estimates, which are to be presented to the Sierra Leone Legislature shortly.
