HC Deb 29 May 1946 vol 423 cc197-8W
Mr. Younger

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will give increased opportunities to persons of Asiatic race in Malaya to occupy posts of importance in the civil administration of the country.

Mr. George Hall

I would invite attention to the separate statement which I am making today on the general question of the organisation of the Colonial Service. The principles which I have laid down with regard to the increase of opportunities for Colonial people to staff the public services of their own countries will apply in Malaya no less than in other Colonial territories.
