HC Deb 17 May 1950 vol 475 c158W
85. Mr. Gammans

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he is yet in a position to make a statement on his itinerary during his visit to Malaya; and what steps he proposes to take to acquaint himself with the hazardous lives being lived by rubber planters and tin miners.

Mr. J. Griffiths

It is my intention to see as much of conditions in Malaya as time will permit. In addition to visits to various States and Settlements, and talks with the conference of rulers and other authorities, the arrangements contemplated in the Federation include visits to rubber estates and tin mines and meetings with the planting and mining community.
