HC Deb 27 July 1931 vol 255 cc1923-4
17. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Secretary of State for India whether any decisions have been reached by the Committee that has been inquiring into the future of a province of Sind; and, if so, what is the nature of the recommendations?


The expert Committee appointed in India to examine what would be the financial position of Sind as a separate province started work two or three weeks ago; and there has accordingly not yet been time for it to report.

Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY

May we take it that the reports in the newspapers on the reommendations of this Committee with regard to Sind are false?


I have not seen the reports in the newspapers dealing with the question of Sind, but there was a long report dealing with the North-West frontier.
