HC Deb 07 November 1950 vol 480 c38W
86. Mr. Teeling

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury why His Majesty's Stationery Office refused to accept for publication as an advertisement in the "London Gazette" of 27th October, 1950, a notice of the appointment of Francis Farrington Boult and Harold Thackwell Lewis as new trustees of the will of the late Sir James Brooke, first Rajah of Sarawak.

Mr. Jay

The Stationery Office declined to accept the notice after receiving advice from the Colonial Office that there was objection to publication as reference was made to the sovereignty of Sarawak, which is in His Majesty.
