§ 30. Mr. Biggs-Davison
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many British officials in Cyprus are proficient in Greek, in Turkish and in both languages; and how many are proficient in neither.
§ Mr. Profumo
Of the British officials required by Cyprus General Orders to pass language examinations. 54 have passed in Greek, 10 in Turkish, and 7 in both languages. Exact information is not available about those officers not required to pass examinations, but many are known to be reasonably proficient in one or other language.
