Introduction Scholars agree that the Straits Chinese formed a coherent and distinctive community with a hybrid culture combining Chinese, Malay and British traits and in its political identification with the British, as the community developed from its mercantilist base into a privileged class dependent on colonial patronage at the turn of the nineteenth century.The Legislative Council of the Straits Settlements was a legislature formed on 1 Aprilwhen the Straits Settlements was made a Crown colony.

This allowed laws to be made swiftly and efficiently, as it was directly responsible to the Secretary of State for the Colonies in London, instead of being placed under a legislative hierarchy and answering to the Calcutta government based in India.They were concerned, too, at the growing numerical strength and power of the Chinese, and the stirrings of Chinese political consciousness as expressed, for instance, in the views of Tan Cheng Lock, the Straits-born Chinese leader, who advocated a 'united self-governing Malayan nation', in which locally-domiciled Chinese would be given equal.
