HC Deb 22 February 1927 vol 202 cc1591-2W

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the rubber restriction policy is to be continued after the 1st November next, and, if so, what alterations are contemplated in the regulation of the scheme after that date?


So long as the conditions under which the present scheme is operating remain substantially the same such, for instance, as the area of restriction, I do not propose to suggest to the Governments in Ceylon and Malaya that they should suspend their restriction measures or that the regulations now in force should be materially modified.
