§ 12. Mr. Sorensen
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether any communication has recently been received from Mr. Gandhi; and whether there have been any recent developments towards a satisfactory solution of the difficulties arising from the conflict between His Majesty's Government and the demands of the Indian National Congress?
§ The Under-Secretary of State for India (Sir Hugh O'Neill)
The Governor-General has received no recent communication from Mr. Gandhi, and I regret that the answer to the second part of the question is in the negative, though I am glad to note that further discussions between Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru and Mr. Jinnah, President of the All-India Muslim League, are likely to take place.
§ Mr. Sorensen
Has the right hon. Gentleman's attention been drawn to a letter sent by Mr. Gandhi to a London newspaper, the "News-Chronicle," and is he considering the contents of that letter?
§ Sir H. O'Neill
Oh, yes, I have seen that letter, and certainly we have taken note of its contents.
