HC Deb 30 July 1941 vol 373 cc1384-5
12. Mr. Creech Jones

asked the Under-secretary of State for the Colonies what is the present position in respect to discussions for changes in the Constitution of Ceylon; and whether consideration of changes is suspended for the period of the war?

Mr. Whiteley

My Noble Friend is still in consultation with the Governor, but I am not yet in a position to say what the outcome will be or what progress will be found practicable during the continuance of the war.
