HC Deb 26 July 1965 vol 717 c9W
47. Mr. Rose

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will take action to widen the area of recruitment into the foreign, colonial and diplomatic services.

Mr. George Thomson

As I said in a Written Answer on 19th July, efforts are continually being made to widen the area of recruitment to the Diplomatic Service, which incorporates the former Foreign Service. I am not responsible for those serving in colonial territories overseas.
