HC Deb 16 December 1949 vol 470 c342W
Mr. Cuthbert

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies, in view of the murder of His Majesty's Governor at Sarawak, what steps he has taken to protect His Majesty's representatives in that area against similar crimes.

Mr. Creech Jones

Internal security measures, including those necessary for the protection of His Majesty's Representatives, are the responsibility of the local Governments concerned, who are best able to judge what precautions are appropriate. I do not consider it necessary to issue any new directions.
