§ Major POLE
asked the Secretary of State for India whether a decision has been arrived at in regard to the date of the elections to the Indian Legislative Assembly and the Indian Provincial Legislative Councils?
§ Mr. BENN
The Governor-General announced on 16th June that elections for the two Chambers of the Central Legislature will be held in September next. The dates for the elections to the Provincial Legislative Councils have not yet been fixed definitely; probably most of them will be held also in September.
