§ *MR. REES
I beg to ask the Undersecretary of State for India whether he can give the House any information regarding the succession to the Limbdi and Jasdan State and estate in Kathiwar, the action in regard to which of the Government, of India has given rise to complaint on the part of claimants.
§ MR. BUCHANAN
As regards the Jasdan succession I have nothing to add to the very full Answer I gave on the subject on the 8th instant. As regards the Limbdi succession, the late Thakore died, leaving no heir, either direct or adopted. In these circumstances the Government of India, on a full consideration of the claims of all the candidates to the Gadi, have selected Dolat Sinji to succeed. It is open to any of the claimants to memorialise the Secretary of State against the decision in accordance with the rules governing petitions in such matters. Any memorial that may be received will, of course, receive the fullest consideration.
