§ 1. Mr. A. SHAW
asked the Secretary of State for India whether he can make any statement regarding the future of waterways in Bengal and Assam; and what effect will be given to the wishes of the trading community for the constitution of a waterways board?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Mr Montagu)
I have received a letter from the Government of India reviewing the subjects and making recommendations. These recomendations are now under consideration, and I shall be glad if my hon. Friend will assist me in their consideration.
§ Colonel WEDGWOOD
Is it not possible to postpone the consideration of this matter until after the Indian Bill has passed?
