62. Mr. LUNN

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the report from the committee in Hong Kong and the report from the Governor of the Federated and Unfederated Malay States on mui-tsai have been received; and whether it is intended to publish them?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Mr. J. H. Thomas)

The report of the Committee in Hong Kong has been published in the Colony and a copy has been placed in the Library of the House. With regard to Malaya, a despatch has been received from the Governor, who states that his future periodical reports will be amplified in the manner suggested by the hon. Gentleman in his question of 10th July. I will supply him with a copy of the Governor's despatch, and will have a copy placed in the Library of the House.
