HC Deb 27 February 1946 vol 419 c393W
Dr. Morgan

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether in camp disturbances or civil commotions in which colonial troops, especially West Indian recruits, are involved, the officers of his welfare department have been available on the spot to safeguard the interests of the men and protect them against any charge of misbehaviour resulting from or involving colour prejudice; and whether any information is obtainable where disciplinary action is taken or penalties inflicted.

Mr. Creech Jones

No, Sir, but the officers of my welfare department are in constant touch with the service authorities and their help in such cases is readily available. I would suggest that if my hon. Friend refers to information about West Indians in the R.A.F., he should address a further Question to the Undersecretary of State for Air.
