HC Deb 04 March 1930 vol 236 c260W
Major POLE

asked the Secretary of State for India whether, in regard to the proposal of the Government of India to appoint trade commissioners at certain important centres of trade in Africa and Europe, he will state what steps are being taken to fill these posts; and whether it is the intention of the Government to reserve appointments to members of the Indian Civil Service?


The question of appointing these trade commissioners is still under consideration, and I regret that no statement can at present be made.
