§ 5. Sir C. YATE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether the opportunity will be taken of the appointment of a Joint Committee in India to examine and report on the electoral rules for the Indian Legislature and Provincial Councils to bring in a rule for the deposit of a certain amount by each candidate for election to be forfeited if the candidate fails to get the required proportion of votes, in the same manner as in elections in the United Kingdom?
§ Earl WINTERTON
The question is under consideration in connection with the Committee's Report, on which final decisions have not yet been taken.
