HC Deb 27 February 1946 vol 419 cc398-9W
Mr. Gordon-Walker

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has yet received a Report from Sir Harold MacMichael on his negotiations with the Malay Rulers; and if he will arrange for copies of this Report to be made available to Members.

Mr. Creech Jones

Yes, Sir. I am arranging for copies of Sir Harold MacMichael's Report to be placed in the Library of the House this afternoon.

Mr. T. Reid

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if the Sultans of the Federated and Unfederated Malay States have finally agreed to the system of Crown Colony Government proposed for their territories.

Mr. Creech Jones

I would invite the attention of my hon. Friend to the reply which I have given to my hon. Friend the Member for Smethwick (Mr. Gordon-Walker). I am sending my hon. Friend a copy of Sir Harold MacMichael's Report, from which he will see that each of the nine Rulers, before signing the new Agreement affecting his State, was presented with a full and clear statement of the intentions of His Majesty's Government.
