HC Deb 18 February 1907 vol 169 c538
SIR H. COTTON (Nottingham, E.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether the special committee of the Executive Council in India which was appointed last summer to inquire into and report on the reorganisation of the Legislative Councils in that country has submitted its Report.


The Report has been under the consideration of the Executive Council, and I expect a dispatch on the subject in a very short time. Of course the hon. Member will understand that this Report, like the proceedings of a Cabinet Committee here, is entirely confidential.

EARL PERCY (Kensington, S.)

Is it the intention of the Government to give the House an opportunity of discussing this question before a final decision is arrived at?


I think so undoubtedly.
