HC Deb 06 December 1926 vol 200 c1679W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he will make inquiries as to the reason for the departure, in the ease of the nominated seat for the special representation of Labour in the Punjab Council, from the Government of India's policy of not filling nominated seats until after the elective seats have been filled?


I think that it is a matter of normal practice rather than of fixed policy, but, if the hon. Member attaches importance to the point, I shall be glad to inquire. The filling of nominated seats in a Provincial Legislative Council is a matter entirely for the discretion of the Governor himself.
