7. Sir G. Fox

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies when it is proposed to publish the text of the Instrument of Cession, signed on 21st May, 1946, by which the State of Sarawak was ceded to the Crown; and why the precise terms of the transfer have not been published before.

Mr. Creech Jones

The text of the Sarawak Cession Instrument was published last May in Kuching. A copy has been placed in the Library of the House.
