HC Deb 28 October 1919 vol 120 c490W

asked the Secretary of State for India whether, in view of the fact that the acts of the Government of India are to be inquired into, he will direct that the Punjaub Inquiry Commission shall report directly to Parliament and not to the Government of India?


I do not see that anything would be gained by my hon. and gallant Friend's suggestion. The Committee, under the chairmanship of Lord Hunter, has been appointed by, and will report to, the Government of India, who will submit the Report to me for consideration. The Report will be published in India and in this country and laid before Parliament.
