§ 58. Sir W. DAVISON
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware of the lack of telephonic communication between this country and the Federated Malay States, whereas there is an excellent telephone service to Great Britain and the Continent from the adjoining Dutch colonies; and whether the Post Office have in contemplation the remedying of this handicap and inconvenience to British residents in Malaya?
§ Mr. ATTLEE
The question of establishing a wireless telephone service between this country and Singapore is under consideration, but I am not at present in a position to make any definite statement on the subject.
§ Sir W. DAVISON
Will the hon. Member recognise the handicap to British subjects compared with Dutch nationals?
