HC Deb 20 November 1946 vol 430 cc125-6W
107. Mr. Dumpleton

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will take steps to secure the representation of local Civil Service Associations on the Promotions Boards of Trinidad, St. Vincent and Grenada; and whether he will appoint such Boards, with staff representation, in Barbadoes and the Leeward Islands, on the same lines as existing Boards in Jamaica, British Honduras and British Guiana

Mr. Creech Jones

The appointment of a promotions board is in all cases a matter for the Colonial Government concerned. In St. Vincent the Promotions Board already includes a representative of the local Civil Service Association. I understand that the question of co-opting a representative is under consideration in Grenada. In Barbadoes a representative of the local Civil Service Association is to attend meetings of the Promotions Committee in future. The position in Trinidad and the Leeward Islands is under consideration
