§ 24. Mr. D. Jones
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the Hawkins Committee on Singapore's transport has yet reported; and if he will make copies available to hon. Members.
§ Mr. Awbery
Is the Minister of State aware that this fight has been going on for five months, that an independent tribunal has given a decision, and that this company refuses to implement the decision of the independent tribunal? Will he take steps now to withdraw from those people the exclusive right to run transport in Singapore?
§ Mr. D. Jones
On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. The Hawkins Committee has nothing to do with the strike in Singapore. The Hawkins Committee was set up to consider the management and control of transport there.
