HC Deb 01 February 1955 vol 536 cc91-2W
Mr. G. M. Thomson

asked the Secretary of State for War to make a statement on the latest military situation in Malaya.

Mr. F. Maclean

There is a steady improvement in the position as the drop in the monthly number of incidents from 500 in 1951 to under 90 in 1954 illustrates. No particular comment is, I think, called for at the moment, but my right hon. Friend will, of course, be reviewing the situation in his Memorandum on Army Estimates 1955–56.
