16. Earl WINTERTON
asked the Secretary of State for India if it is intended that any proposals put forward at the recent Round Table Conference which do not require an amendment of the Government of India Act in order to be effected shall be put into operation; and, if so, whether he will state which proposals will be so treated?
§ Mr. BENN
The Government of India have already announced that a committee will be set up at an early date to formulate plans for the Indian Military College which it is intended to establish. There may be other administrative action which can be taken in the near future, and sympathetic consideration is being given to any such possibility.
Will the right hon. Gentleman publish a White Paper or otherwise inform the House of the intentions of His Majesty's Government having regard to the great importance of this matter?
Will the right hon. Gentleman further consider publishing a White Paper explaining exactly what is meant by the speech of the Commander-in-Chief in the Assembly on behalf of His Majesty's Government in which he foreshadowed a very extensive increase in Indianisation, about which we have had no information yet in this House?
