HC Deb 27 February 1928 vol 214 cc46-7W

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he can give an assurance that the existing rubber restriction scheme will continue unaltered during the current restriction year, which ends on 31st October, whatever the finding of the Committee of Civil Research as to the ultimate fate of the scheme may be?


I am unable to add anything to the reply given on the 20th February by the Prime Minister to the hon. Member for Streatham (Sir W. Lane Mitchell).

Colonel BURTON

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies the date upon which the Colonial Office informed the Advisory Committee that the Government had decided to examine the rubber restriction scheme?


The matter was mentioned to members of the Advisory Committee on more than one ocasion. All communications were made in strict confidence, and I do not see that any advantage would be gained by entering into any particulars regarding them.
