§ MR. KING (Hull, Central)
asked the Under Secretary of State for India, When the Government propose to ask the House to appoint the Committee on Indian affairs promised last Session?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE (Sir JOHN GORST) (Chatham)
Since last Session a very important Commission, to which I have several times alluded in answering Questions, has been appointed in India, and is now engaged in making a comprehensive inquiry into the organization of the Government Departments in India. Until this Commission has reported, the Secretary of State does not intend to ask Parliament to appoint a Joint Committee on Indian Affairs.
