HC Deb 26 March 1936 vol 310 cc1419-20

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has considered a resolution passed at the conference of the Indian community in the north-western electoral division of Fiji, held at Lautoka on 12th January, in which they request him to order the holding of a general election on the question of the proposed abolition of the elective legislature; and what action he proposes to take thereupon?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Mr. J. H. Thomas)

I have received the resolution referred to. As I recently informed the hon. Member, the whole matter is still under consideration. I can say no more at this stage.
