HC Deb 16 March 1955 vol 538 cc123-4W
62. Mr. Awbery

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what steps are being taken to bring about a Malayanisation of the Civil Service in the Federation of Malaya; and how many senior posts are now held by non-Europeans.

Mr. Hopkinson

Malayans are now being recruited to the Public Service as fast as fully qualified and otherwise suitable candidates can be found. By last year 587 out of 2,387 officers in Division I posts were Malayan.
