HC Deb 11 December 1946 vol 431 c227W
86. Mr. Rees-Williams

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what pension, gratuity, award or decoration has been, or will be, given to those Asiatics in British Malaya and Sarawak who assisted, at great personal risk, European prisoners or internees; and whether, in cases where such persons were tortured and murdered by the Japanese for so doing, adequate compensation will be given to their families.

Mr. Creech Jones

Full information is not available in this country. I have therefore asked the Governors of the territories concerned for reports, and will write to my hon. Friend when I have received them.
