§ MR. ONSLOW
asked the Secretary of State for India, Whether it is his intention at once to fill up the vacancy in the Indian Council, owing to the resignation of Sir Erskine Perry, or whether he will wait till the return of Sir Ashley Eden from India?
THE MARQUESS OF HARTINGTON
Sir, I think it hardly necessary that I should state to the House the reasons which have caused the delay in the appointment of the successor to Sir Erskine Perry. I hope shortly to be able to make the appointment.
