HC Deb 23 March 1955 vol 538 cc192-3W
80. Mr. Awbery

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he is aware that the President of the United Malav National Organisation and the Malay Chinese Organisation have offered their services as intermediaries to go into the jungle to discuss an amnesty with the rebels in Malaya with a view to bringing the emergency to an end; and whether he will take advantage of this offer of these two responsible men and give them terms which are reasonably acceptable to present to the rebels.

Mr. Hopkinson

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply on this subject which I gave to the hon. Member for Dundee, East (Mr. G. M. Thomson) on 26th January, to which I have nothing to add.
