HC Deb 22 February 1926 vol 192 cc51-2W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India the number of persons enfranchised for electing members of the Council of State, the Legislative Assembly, and the Legislative Councils, respectively?


The hon. Member will find the latest figures for all the Provincial Councils, except that of Burma and for the Legislative Assembly, on the first seven pages of Command 2154, of which I am sending him a copy. The figure for Burma in 1922 was 1,766,386, and for the Council of State in 1920, 17,644. I have not figures for the last elections to these two bodies, which took place quite recently.
