HC Deb 13 April 1921 vol 140 cc1130-1W

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is able to furnish a summary of the recommendations contained in the Report of the South African Commission on the position of Indians in the territory of the Union; whether the Union Government have indicated what action they propose to take thereon; and whether the views of the Government of India have yet been expressed on proposals so seriously affecting the interests of large numbers of Indians?


I will place a copy of the Report, which contains a summary of the recommendations, in the Library of the House. The Union Government have decided to postpone legislation until the next Session of the Union Parliament. I understand that the Report has not yet been considered by the Government of India. Any views which they may express will be communicated to the Union Government.

Forward to
