§ 40. Mr. DRUMMOND-WOLFF
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what progress has been made in the matter of preservation of game in Malaya, in view of the recommendations made in the Wild Life Commission which reported in 1931?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Sir Philip Cunliffe-Lister)
I have no very recent information as to the steps taken to give effect to the recommendations contained in the report of the Wild Life Commission in Malaya. Mr. Hubback, the author of the report, offered his services to the local Government as Honorary Chief Game Warden, and this offer was duly accepted. Certain other measures are, I understand, under active consideration by the local authorities. I am asking the High Commissioner for an early report on the present position.
§ Sir P. CUNLIFFE-LISTER
It has not been under my consideration for six years, and I think the hon. Member will bear me out when I say that during my term of office he has been fairly successful in getting action taken all over the world on this matter.
