Class Ii: Malay States (25 Jul 1946)

Mr George Hall: It will be for the convenience of the Committee if I make a short statement on the present constitutional situation in Malaya.

Class Ii: Malay States (25 Jul 1946)

Mr George Hall: I will get the date for my hon. Friend. I think it is for a very short period.
