§ 70. Mr. Awbery
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many men were dismissed in Singapore recently as a result of the corruption inquiry; and what steps are being taken to restore public confidence in our security measures and to prevent corruption in the Police Force in the Colony.
§ Mr. J. Griffiths
Eighteen policemen were recently dismissed. As regards the second part of the Question, the Governor is fully alive to the need of maintaining public confidence and, among other measures, he has set up a special organisation to watch for corruption in all branches of the Government service.
