10. Major POLE

asked the Secretary of State for India whether, in the matter of the decision of the Government of India, to send out this year a delegation to the Malay States, any steps have yet been taken; and whether the desirability of the delegation's terms of reference being so drawn as to enable it to investigate not only the labour conditions of Indians in Malaya, but also their position in the matter of political status and civic rights, has been considered?


The delegation has again been postponed until normal economic conditions have been re-established in Malaya. As regards the purpose of the delegation I cannot add anything to the replies given to my hon. and gallant Friend on 12th February and 12th May of last year.

Forward to
