§ 12. Mr. WILLIAMS (for Mr. GRENFELL)
asked the Secretary of State for India whether, in view of the desirability of making the forthcoming elections in Burma as representative as possible, new electoral rolls are being prepared to include those who have boycotted the previous elections to the Provincial Legislative Council?
§ Sir S. HOARE
New electoral rolls have been prepared, and I hope that all persons entitled to vote at the forthcoming elections are, or will be, included in the lists. I have already addressed an inquiry to the Governor of Burma on the point.
