Lord Hailey's Proposals

13.

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has considered Lord Hailey's proposals for regional international advisory councils for colonial territories in different parts of the world; and whether he has any statement to make?

Lord Hailey's views on policy in this field have naturally received my close attention. I regret however that I have no statement to make at present.

Civil Service (Cost-Of-Living Bonus)

14.

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies why a cost-of-living bonus has been granted to European and Asian civil servants in the Colonial Civil Service but not to Africans?

I know of no Colony in which a cost-of-living bonus has been granted to European and Asian Civil Servants but not to Africans.
