HC Deb 01 October 1942 vol 383 c948W
Mr. Riley

asked the Secretary of State for India whether, in view of the rejection by the leading parties in India of His Majesty's Government's proposals, the Government is prepared to consider a modification of those proposals with a view of furthering a possible settlement of the Indian problem.

Mr. Amery

His Majesty's Government remain most anxious to further a settlement of the Indian problem. In the absence, however, of a sufficient common measure of agreement among Indians themselves, which is the real obstacle to a settlement, they do not consider that any modification of their proposals would contribute to the desired result.
