asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies when the hon. Member for Hornsey may expect to get a reply to his letter of 21st October, 1948, about military requisitioning in Malaya and his letter of 4th November, 1948, about the pay of co-operative officers in Malaya.

I am sorry that it has not yet been possible to send definite replies to the hon. Member's letters. As regards the letter of 4th November I am still in communication with the High Commissioner. I have now written to the hon. Member informing him of the reasons for the delay. Consultation between the Departments concerned on the complex matters raised in the letter of 21st October has not yet been completed.
