HC Deb 07 July 1924 vol 175 c1744
2. Sir C. YATE

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether considering that the Government of India have now appointed a Committee to inquire into what Amendments to the Government of India Act appear necessary to rectify any administrative imperfections, the Secretary of State will now authorise the Government of India to suspend the Legislative Assembly and provincial councils till such time as the deliberations of the committee have been completed?


The answer is in the negative.


Will the Government of India take into account the possibility of extending the scope of this Commission to deal with some of the questions which are causing unrest at the present time?


Nothing would be gained by referring again to the terms of reference of this inquiry which have already been given in the House on more than one occasion.
