HC Deb 09 February 1933 vol 274 c351
47. Mr. DONNER

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the Statute of Westminster, His Majesty's Government proposes to consult the Governments of the Dominions before finally committing themselves to any form of constitutional reform in India?


No, Sir. There is nothing in the Statute of Westminster which affects the present position as regards constitutional reform in India.

Brigadier-General Sir HENRY CROFT

Is my right hon. Friend aware that there is a considerable amount of anxiety in the Dominions on this subject, having regard to the state of affairs in Ireland at the present time?


The Statute of Westminster, I may remind my hon. and gallant Friend, does not deal with a state of anxiety.
