asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he is aware of the dissatisfaction felt by the Junior Civil Service Association of Malaya regarding the offer made to them of back pay during the period of the Japanese occupation; and what steps he proposes to take regarding the representations on the subject which have been made to him.
