HC Deb 07 March 1927 vol 203 cc824-5

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will supply a Return showing the tonnage of rubber represented by unused rights and by unused coupons in Malaya and Ceylon, separately and respectively, for each month of the 12 months ending January, 1927?


As the answer involves a number of figures, I will, with my hon. Friend's permission, circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Following is the answer:

The figures available as to unused export credits are as follow:

Malaya (excluding Trengganu and, for July, 1926, only, Kedah):
End of July, 1926 23,099
End of August, 1926 76,935
End of September 1926 52,467
End of October, 1926 24,839
End of November, 1926 57,776
End of December, 1926 38,741
End of January, 1927 18,707


Middle of January, 1927 about 15,000

If these figures be insufficient for my hon. Friend's purpose, I will ask the Governor and High Commissioner for fuller particulars.
