HC Deb 06 November 1929 vol 231 cc1058-9W

asked the Undersecretary of State for the Colonies what action has been taken by the Government of the Straits Settlements and the Federated Malay States to give effect to the recommendations of Lord Balfour of Burleigh's Committee on problems connected with the laws affecting prostitution in Malaya?


The Governor has informed my Noble Friend that the Committee's conclusions represent broadly the policy already adopted by the Colonial Government, and that the question of enacting legislation for the suppression of "sly" brothels is under consideration.
