36. Sir W. LANE MITCHELL
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how the revenues of the Malay Native States and also the Federated Malay. States will be affected if the price of 910 rubber remains in the neighbourhood of 8d. or less?
Sir W. LANE MITCHELL
If the restrictions are automatically withdrawn, will you not be in the same position in which you were before the restrictions were put on, and in that case, if rubber does not reach 1s. 3d. per lb. the Native States get no revenue?
Major-General Sir ROBERT HUTCHISON
Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether it is the intention of the Malay Government to carry on the two cents of tax on the export of rubber?
