HC Deb 08 February 1932 vol 261 cc471-2
35. Mr. T. WILLIAMS (for Dr. WILLIAMS)

asked the Secretary of State for India whether the Government of India, took any steps to call an urgent session of the Legislative Assembly when the situation in India, in their opinion, demanded the widespread use of force and extraordinary powers?


No, Sir. An emergency had arisen which the Governor-General considered necessitated the immediate exercise of the powers conferred on him by the Government of India Act for that purpose.
