§ Major POLE
asked the Secretary of State for India if it is the intention of the Government of India to send an Indian delegation to the Malay States to investigate the conditions of the resident Indian community; and, if so, 425W whether the terms of reference of the delegation's inquiry will enable them to investigate and make recommendations concerning the position of Indians in Malaya in the matter of political status and civic rights?
§ Mr. BENN
The Government of the Straits Settlements suggested to the Government of India last year that they should send a deputation to Malaya to examine the progress made in recent years in labour administration in Malaya. The Government of India welcomed the suggestion, but I have not heard whether any decision was reached. I will ask the Government of India to let me know.
