HC Deb 08 February 1956 vol 548 c181W
80. Captain Kerby

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies to specify the nature of the appointment in Cyprus offered to Sir Harry Leonard D'Arcy Waechter, and in connection with which he was in correspondence with the Governor and Commander-in-Chief of the island; and what salary and expenses attached to the appointment in question.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

Sir D'Arcy Waechter is not known personally by the Governor, but is one of many people who wrote to him volunteering to help in Cyprus. As he stated that he had served with Cypriot troops during the war it was thought that he might be suitable for a post in the police force, which needed reinforcements. A reply was therefore sent by a member of the Governor's staff asking him to send his full particulars to the Colonial Office. No application was received from him and no offer of appointment has been made to him.
