HC Deb 20 December 1916 vol 88 c1498W
Sir J. D. REES

asked the Secretary of State for India whether he has received a representation from the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council regarding the protraction of Indian litigation; and, if so, whether action will be taken in view of the necessity which exists for reducing the length of time allowed for appeals?


Yes, Sir. The Judicial Committee made very important suggestions, which are before the Government of India. I am fully alive to the need for a reformed procedure.
