HC Deb 18 October 1950 vol 478 c2025
23. Sir Jocelyn Lucas

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will now ban all future exports of rubber from Malaya other than to Western Union or Atlantic Pact countries until such time as Communist bandit activities cease in that area.

Mr. J. Griffiths

No, Sir.

Sir J. Lucas

While realising the difficulty of the question, would not the Minister consider giving priority to the members of Western Union?

Mr. Griffiths

That is another question.
