§ The PRIME MINISTER
Unfortunately the right hon. Sir Sidney Rowlatt, who was chairman of this commission, has found it necessary to resign his appointment for private reasons. It 1935 was thought that the work of the commission would be facilitated by recommending to His Majesty that its members should, in the reconstitution consequent upon the chairman's resignation, be increased to five. I regret that I cannot at the present stage give any indication of the date on which the commission will be in a position to submit a report.
