asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what pension is being paid from Sarawak funds to Mr. MacBryan, late secretary to the former Rajah of Sarawak; and if any additional pension is being paid to him from any other official source.

Payments totalling £1,400 per annum are being made to Mr. Mac-Bryan from Sarawak Government funds. Of this sum £500 per annum is paid under the provisions of the Rajah's Dependants Order, 1946, in accordance with the arrangements concluded in connection with the Cession; the remaining £900 is an additional ex gratia annuity approved by the Sarawak Government with effect from 1st April, 1947, in final settlement of certain claims which had not been brought to notice at the time of the Cession. So far as I am aware, no other payments are being made to Mr. Mac-Bryan from any other official sources.
