HC Deb 09 April 1963 vol 675 cc132-3W
Mr. Oram

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies, in the light of the rapid development of co-operative societies in North Borneo in recent years and of the potential for future development, if he will now establish a separate Department of Co-operatives in the Colony.

Mr. Sandys

When the Federation of Malaysia is established co-operative societies will be a Federal subject. The future organisation is now under discussion in a Committee on which the Malayan and North Borneo Governments are represented.
