HC Deb 28 July 1927 vol 209 cc1464-5
80. Mr. KELLY

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India the reason for the long delay in the formulation of the views of the hone Government on the findings of the Auxiliary and Territorial Forces Committee; whether he is aware that the matters dealt with by the Committee are considered by a large body of opinion in India as primarily the concern of the Government of India and that the delay in the communication of the home Government's views further delays action being taken by the Government of India on the Committee's Report; and whether, in view of the importance attached to this question in India, he will give some indication as to when the Secretary of State hopes to be in a position to communicate the views of the home Government on the above Report?


The views of His Majesty's Government on the Auxiliary and Territorial Forces Committee Report have been communicated to the Government of India.


Can the Noble Lord give any indication as to the statement that has been made to the Government of India?


No, certainly not, till the Government of India have had an opportunity of considering the matter.
