HC Deb 13 July 1959 vol 609 c12W
Captain Kerby

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies why Mr. Dyke Campbell Hill was not employed on the duties for which he had been recruited when he ceased performing para-military duties, in view of the fact that such a course is normally followed and that it was not then fully apparent that this officer was unsuitable for confirmation.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

Mr. Hill's attitude towards the orders to relinquish his para-military duties and afterwards made it abundantly clear that he was not prepared to conform to the standards of discipline essential in a police force.

For this reason and because of his lack of his administrative ability it was decided to terminate his appointment without further extension of his probationary period.
