17. Lieut.-Colonel Sir Thomas Moore

asked the Secretary of State for India what representative from India it is proposed to appoint to the newly formed Empire War Directorate?

The Secretary of State for India (Mr. Amery)

His Majesty's Government are anxious that India should be afforded the same opportunity as the Dominions of being represented at the War Cabinet and on the Pacific War Council for the purposes of formulation and direction of policy for the prosecution of the war. They have accordingly invited the Government of India to arrange for such representation if they so desire.
