§ Mr. Levy
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies (1) whether the personnel of the Commission appointed to inquire into the Bracegirdle case and their terms of reference, were approved by the Board of Ministers of Ceylon; and whether the Board of Ministers were themselves parties to the inquiry;
(2) whether the approval of the Inspector-General of Police in Ceylon was sought for the personnel or terms of reference of the Commission appointed to inquire into the Bracegirdle case?
Mr. M. MacDonald
The personnel and terms of reference of the Commission, which was appointed by the Governor, had the concurrence of the Board of Ministers. I have no reason to think that the Inspector-General of Police was consulted as to either the personnel or the terms of reference of the Commission.
