§ 14. Mr. Skeffington
asked the Secretary of State for War in what capacity Italians are being employed by the British Military Administration in Eritrea; and for what reasons.
§ Mr. Shinwell
Italians in Eritrea are being employed in administrative and professional capacities, as judges, doctors, teachers, police, agricultural inspectors and surveyors; others provide the technical and clerical staffs which local resources are unqualified to supply. The employment of such Italians is necessary to enable the administration to function smoothly until such time as the future of the Colony is determined.
