HC Deb 23 June 1930 vol 240 c776
20. Mr. MARLEY

asked the Secretary of State for India whether any and, if so, what resignations from the Legislative Assembly have taken place since 1st April, 1930; whether the reasons for such resignations were stated; and, if so, what were they?


Twenty-four elected members of the Legislative Assembly have resigned since 1st April. Two gave no reason for their resignation; 10 resigned as a protest against the passing of the Cotton Textile Industry Protection Act; eight as a protest against the action taken by Government to deal with the civil disobedience campaign; and two in order to join that campaign. Two Europeans resigned owing to absence in Europe.
