HC Deb 05 June 1939 vol 348 cc3-4
3. Sir Percy Harris (for Mr. Graham White)

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India, with regard to the suggestion made through the Viceroy of India that there should be a round-table conference upon the question of colour-bar legislation in South Africa similar to the 1927 and 1928 Conference, whether this suggestion has now been agreed to by the South African Government; and when the conference is likely to take place?

Lieut.-Colonel Muirhead

Negotiations are in progress between the Government of India and the Union Government, and I should prefer not to make any statement on the subject at this stage.
