asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has now received the recommendations of the Consultative Committee of the Governor's Advisory Council for Malaya; whether it is his intention to publish them; and whether the sultans and rulers of Malaya have accepted these recommendations.

I would refer to my reply to my hon. Friend on 23rd April and to the hon. Member for Bury (Mr. W. Fletcher) on 30th April. The Consultative Committee's Report was considered by the Malay Rulers at a meeting with the Governor-General Malaya and the Governor of the Malayan Union on 24th April. I hope to receive the Governor's recommendations shortly.
