HC Deb 30 May 1932 vol 266 cc804-5
6. Captain FULLER

asked the Secretary of State for India if he will bring to the notice of the Ottawa Conference the recommendation of the Simon Commission that the defence of the North-West Frontier of India should be an Imperial liability; and if he will press for a contribution from the Dominions in order to relieve India of some of the burden of military expenditure she now has to bear?


No, Sir. I do not think that the Ottawa Conference could suitably discuss such a proposal.
