HC Deb 21 June 1951 vol 489 c81W
103. Mr. T. Reid

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations what representations he has made to the Government of Ceylon in respect of exports of rubber to China.

Mr. Gordon-Walker

I have informed the Government of Ceylon of our decision to prohibit entirely exports of rubber to China. I have not heard if they have made any announcement about exports of rubber to China from Ceylon. Rubber is not, however, normally exported from Ceylon to China.
