HC Deb 20 November 1946 vol 430 c122W
103. Mr. Gammans

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies why "Radio Malaya" was not informed of his broadcast to Malaya, and why arrangements were not made to have the text published in the Malayan Press.

Mr. Creech Jones

"Radio Malaya was informed of my broadcast to the Colonies and included quotations in its news bulletins. I he full text of the broadcast was released to the Press in Singapore on 16th October, and in the Malayan Union on 18th October. The delay in the latter case was due to pressure of other urgent work in the decoding office and to telegraphic corruptions in the text.
