HC Deb 21 February 1940 vol 357 c1326
31. Mr. Creech Jones asked

the Secretary of State for the Colonies when he will be in a position to make a statement on the working of the constitution of Ceylon?

Mr. M. MacDonald

Certain reforms of the Ceylon constitution were suggested by the Governor and debated in the State Council last year. The result of that debate did not disclose a general agreement on the lines of reform and I am in consultation with the Governor as to the further procedure which may be acceptable and helpful.
