HC Deb 22 September 1948 vol 456 c857
25. Mr. Piratin

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many Malayan insurgents have been killed; and how many of this number were trade union officials.

Mr. Creech Jones

The number of insurgents killed in Malaya up to 20th September was 158. It is not known how many of these were trade union officials.

Mr. Piratin

Would the Minister care to make inquiries into the number of trade union officials who have been killed above the number which he mentioned, when he will find that the cause for which they are fighting is the same as that for which they joined the movement?

Forward to
