§ 3. Mr. Maclean
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been drawn to the shipment of a cargo of 9,000 tons of rubber to the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics in the British s.s. "Stranrealm"; and what shipments of rubber from the United Kingdom and Malaya to the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and Communist China took place during the month of January.
Mr. H. Wilson
I am aware that the s.s. "Stranrealm" when she sailed early last month from Singapore for Odessa was carrying rubber. Malayan exports of rubber during January to the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics were 175 tons and to China 2,715 tons; re-exports by the United Kingdom to the Soviet Union were 290 tons in January but no rubber was re-exported to China.
