asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he is satisfied that the independent commission against corruption in Hong Kong is being given the necessary resources in finance and manpower to deal with its task.
Yes. Notwithstanding the present restrictions on governmental expenditure in Hong Kong, financial provision for the commission in the financial year 1975–76 is 42 per cent. higher than in 1974–75. The commission's staff, which at present numbers 480, will be increased to over 700 by the end of this financial year.
