§ 30. Mr. Emrys Hughes
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many workers were employed daily on work for His Majesty's Government during the first week in June at Singapore; and what was the average daily wages paid in terms of British money.
§ Mr. Rees-Williams
So far as my right hon. Friend is aware no significant number of workers is employed by His Majesty's Government at Singapore otherwise than under the Service Departments. I suggest that the Question should be addressed to the respective Ministers concerned.
§ Mr. Hughes
Has the Under-Secretary no information about the proposal to spend £3 million on runways?
