HC Deb 06 March 1933 vol 275 c828W

asked the Secretary of State for India whether the attention of the Government of India has been drawn to the lack of funds in the several provinces of India for the purpose of implementing legislation for primary education in rural areas and for the depressed classes; and, if so, what steps they propose to take with a view to enabling provincial Governments to carry such legislation into effect?


I have no information on the matter. Education is a subject which is under the control of the Governments in India, and it is for them to decide what steps can be taken to give effect to legislation of the kind referred to.
