HC Deb 15 November 1926 vol 199 c1525

asked the Under- Secretary of State for India what action the Government of India proposes to take in view of the resolutions recently passed on the subject in the Legislative Assembly and certain of the legislative councils with regard to the nomination of women to the central and provisional legislatures?


The action to be taken upon the resolutions referred to is laid down in the Electoral Rules, of the relevant portion of which I will send the hon. Member a copy. The Government of India have already taken the necessary action as regards the Legislative Assembly, and the local governments concerned will no doubt take similar action very shortly if they have not done so already.
