asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies, if Malays, Chinese or Indians in Malaya who wear jungle-green battle dress which they may have purchased from surplus stock will be allowed to wear this since the regulation was passed on 10th March, 1947, prohibiting the wearing of uniforms.

Under the Public Order Ordinance, 1947, the Governor may prohibit the wearing in public of any uniform or distinctive dress which signifies association with any political organisation or object. I will invite the Governor's comments on the case mentioned by my hon. Friend, and communicate with him on receipt of the reply.
