§ 13. Mr. G. MACDONALD
asked the Secretary of State for India whether he is aware of the resolution passed by the Legislative Council of the Central Provinces in January of this year demanding the creation of Berar as a separate province with full financial and legislative authority; whether the matter is receiving the attention of the Government of India; and what action it is proposed to take?
§ Sir S. HOARE
The question of the arrangements to be made in respect of Berar under a Federal Constitution is under consideration, and I am not in a position to make any statement on the matter.
