Ansr Lord Bandon that a record shall be made of his Lordships's recommendation of this person but that it is necessary to apprize his Lordship that H.M. Govt are not organizing any Police force for B. Columbia.
ABd 21 Oct
Since H.M. Govt is not organizing a Police Force, I think that this will be the best answer, without adding any promise that the writer's name should be noted.
TFE 21 Oct
I almost think I wd note the name as the proviso makes it safe against misconstruction & it has been done on many occasion where it was intended to smooth the refusal? It does give [the] applicant a chance.
