§ Mr. SCURR
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he has received a copy of a proposed constitution for India prepared by a national conference of members of the Legislative Assembly provincial legislatures and other public servants; and, if so, whether His Majesty's Government will give the proposals their careful consideration and promote a conference with the leaders of Indian public opinion, to see if agreement can be reached in order to allay the sense of grievance which exists due to the alleged defects of the present constitution of India?
§ Earl WINTERTON
I have seen only summary in the Press of these proposals, which is obviously incomplete. As regards the second part of the question, I am not in a position to make any statement pending examination of the proposals of the Committee whose report on the working of the constitution has just been published in India, and will be published here in a few days.
