HC Deb 18 August 1919 vol 119 cc1892-3
30. Sir J. D. REES

asked the Secretary of State for India whether the Report the Government of India was asked to submit to him regarding the position of Burma in regard to constitutional reforms as arising out of the Montagu Chelmsford Report has been received; and whether the Joint Committee now sitting will be given an opportunity of considering the claims of Burma to be included in such reforms as are introduced into the constitution of the British-Indian Empire, of which the province is a highly-developed member?

Lieut.-Colonel GILMOUR

I would refer my hon. Friend to paragraph 198 of the Montagu-Chelmsford Report. I understand that the proposals of the Government of Burma have only just reached the Government of India.
