HC Deb 29 November 1966 vol 737 c88W
Captain Kerby

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether Her Majesty's Government are consulted on the integrity and suitability of candidates from the United Kingdom seeking positions in colonial government-controlled organisations prior to acceptance of their application by colonial government authorities.

Mr. Frederick Lee

Where the Crown Agents for Oversea Governments and Administrations, or exceptionally the Ministry of Overseas Development, are asked to produce candidates for such posts, their integrity and suitability would be carefully assessed before the names were submitted to the organisations concerned.
