§ 36. Captain Chetwynd
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India it he has any statement to make on the withdrawal of Indian troops from Indonesia.
§ Mr. A. Henderson
It is hoped that the withdrawal of Indian troops from the Netherlands East Indies will start almost immediately and will be continued until all have been evacuated
§ Captain Chetwynd
May I ask my hon. and learned Friend whether this withdrawal is due to the cessation of military commitments or whether it is a concession to Indian national feeling?
§ Mr. Henderson
I am afraid that I can only say that it is due to a decision to withdraw Indian troops.
