§ 52. Sir ROBERT THOMAS
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether any officially appointed authority is giving systematic consideration to the railway gauge problem in India?
§ Earl WINTERTON
The question of gauge for each new project is considered in relation to the facts in each case, and it has not been thought desirable to constitute a special authority to consider the railway gauge question in India as a whole. The view of the Government of India is that the appointment of such an authority would interfere with and possibly delay the work of improving and developing the railways which is now in progress.
