J. Barlow

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that key men, urgently required in Malaya to start rubber production, are being held up in India and subsequently sent by sea from Calcutta to Singapore; and what arrangements are being made to expedite their journey.

Mr. Lawson

I have no information on the point, but I am making inquiries and will write to the hon. Member.
