HC Deb 12 March 1928 vol 214 cc1486-7

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether it is the intention of the Bombay Government to appoint a committee to investigate the charges of corruption and incompetence recently levelled against certain officials; the terms of reference and the names of the committee; and will the committee be able to call witnesses and examine them on oath?


The Government of Bombay have appointed a committee to advise them regarding further steps in connection with Mr. Nariman's allegations or any other allegations of corruption in the Development Department. My Noble Friend has not yet received a complete list of the members of the committee, but it includes Mr. Nariman and four other elected members of the Legislative Council. The information so far received does not enable me to answer the last part of the question.
