§ Sir JOHN JARDINE
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he can now give detailed information regarding reduction of taxes on the india-rubber production in the Straits Settlements and the Malay States?
Yes, Sir. As regards the Straits Settlements, where no export duty is levied, no change has been made. 1919W It is not possible to give the details as to the changes in the Federated Malay States within the limits of an oral answer, but I will send my hon. Friend a copy of a letter written at my direction which contains full details.
