§ SIR HENRY COTTON (Nottingham, E.)
To ask the Secretary of State for India whether the Indian Government has decided to complete the Hindustan-Tibet road, in order to establish an unbroken link between Simla and Gartok, the new trade mart in Western Tibet; and, if so, what is the estimated cost of this project.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Morley.) I have no official information as to any scheme for completing the Hindustan-Tibet road to Gartok. The Government of India have been asked to report on the subject with reference to the statements that have appeared in the Press.
