§ 54. Captain GARRO-JONES
asked the Prime Minister whether the Government is in any way identified with the Secretary of State for India in the views he propounded on the reform of the House of Lords last Thursday?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
My Noble Friend most plainly, and more than once, indicated that he was not expressing the views of the Government, and that, in fact, the Government had as yet reached no conclusion upon the matter. My Noble Friend added that he was making certain suggestions as an individual Peer which might afford a basis for discussion.
But is not the Noble Lord the Secretary of State for India to be Chairman of the Cabinet Committee?
§ Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
Has the right hon. Gentleman seen the statements by the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Twickenham (Sir W. Joynson-Hicks) on this matter last Friday night, and do they represent the views of the Government?
