HC Deb 07 November 1921 vol 148 c19

asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been called to the Notice of Motion relating to India standing in the names of the hon. Member for Twickenham and others—["That this House views with. grave concern the present state of India, and urges upon His Majesty's Government to take immediate steps to re-establish law and order in that country"]—and when he will give a day for its discussion?

The LEADER of the HOUSE (Mr. Chamberlain)

As this question relates to the business of the House, my hon. Friend will not be surprised if I answer it. I have seen the Notice of Motion, to which, in view both of the importance of the subject and the number of signatures attached to it, His Majesty's Government have given careful consideration. I should be glad if my hon. Friend would be good enough to confer with me before taking further action.


Will it be convenient for my right hon. Friend to see myself and two or three of my friends this afternoon?


Yes; I am at my hon. Friend's disposal immediately after questions.
