HC Deb 05 March 1919 vol 113 cc368-9
65. Sir J. D. REES

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether the Government proposes to constitute a Select Committee of the House of Commons on Indian affairs, as recommended in the Report on Indian. Constitutional Reforms by the Secretary of State and the Governor General of India; if the answer be in the affirmative, when such action will be taken; and whether any objection exists to taking such action now or, at any rate, early in the present Session?

Mr. BONAR LAW (Leader of the House)

His Majesty's Government have under their consideration the recommendation to which the hon. Member refers, along with the other recommendations of the Report, and I think it can best be dealt with as part of the general scheme.
