§ 21. Captain WATERHOUSE
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department if Burma has decided not to exhibit at the British Empire Exhibition this year; and what other territories which were last year represented have decided not to exhibit again?
§ Mr. A. M. SAMUEL
I am informed by the British Empire Exhibition authorities that Burma will not participate. I also understand that Fiji and Sarawak will not take part again, but their buildings have been taken over by Cyprus and Southern Rhodesia. In the West Indian and Atlantic group pavilion the sections previously occupied by St. Lucia, Grenada, the Falkland Islands, and British Honduras will be used for a representation of the West Indies as a whole and for a cinema hall. The exhibition authorities, with the approval of the Government of India, have taken over the Indian pavilion, and hope to organise an exhibit of Indian products. Malta will be represented through a group of traders approved by the Government of the colony.
§ Captain WATERHOUSE
As the Burma building was one of the finest in the exhibition, I should like to know whether it is going to he removed.
