HC Deb 27 March 1928 vol 162 cc300-1W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the question of the revision of the Ceylon Constitution has recently been considered by the Governor in Council; whether any Report of the proceedings has yet been received; and whether the final decision will be communicated to this House before it is brought into operation?


Despatches on the subject of the revision of the Constitution have been laid by the Governor before the Legislative Council. No report of the proceedings has yet, been received from the Governor. As regards the presentation to the House of further papers I would refer to the reply given to the hon. Member for Central Aberdeen-shire (Major M. Wood) on the 20th March.
