§ 1. Mr. Rees-Williams
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what is the cost of making the Old Palace at Johore Bahru ready for occupation by His Excellency the Governor-General of Malaya; and from what funds is the expense to be met.
§ The Secretary of State for the Colonies (Mr. Creech Jones)
The question does not arise as there is no intention at present that the Governor-General should be accommodated in the Old Palace at Johore Bahru.
§ Mr. Rees-Williams
In view of our long connection with the Settlement of Penang, could my right hon. Friend say whether it is intended that the Governor-General should have his residence in that Settlement?
§ Mr. Creech Jones
The whole problem of the residence of the Governor-General is now under discussion.
