§ 8. Mr. PETHICK-LAWRENCE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he is aware that the Bengal government has framed proposals, which have been under the consideration of the Government of India since 1924, for the separation of the executive and judicial functions; and whether he will state which provincial governments have not yet put forward their proposals with regard to this matter?
§ Earl WINTERTON
I doubt whether the final proposals of the Bengal government reached the Government of India as early as 1924. A month ago the Government of India stated in the Indian Legislature that besides those from Bengal they had received proposals from the governments of Madras, the United Provinces and Bihar and Orissa.
