HC Deb 30 January 1918 vol 101 c1524
Sir J. D. REES

asked whether the Government of India contemplates the early establishment of a council of ruling chiefs with specified functions and clearly-defined powers?


As the hon. Member is aware, the whole question of Indian constitutional evolution is now under the consideration of the Secretary of State and the Government of India. It would be premature to make any statement regarding particular measures which may or may not be in contemplation.
