§ Mr. MORGAN JONES
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he is aware that the question of the separation of the judicial and executive functions in India has been under consideration from time to time by the Government of India during the last 80 years; whether he can say if any decisions have been arrived at; and when they are likely to be put into operation?
§ Earl WINTERTON
I am aware of the fact stated in the first part of the question. The matter has of late been very fully examined afresh by most of the local governments and their proposals are now being examined by the Government of India. I am not in a position to say when a decision is likely to be reached.
