HC Deb 14 October 1943 vol 392 c1079W
Mr. Sorensen

asked the Secretary of State for India whether he will give particulars of the communication from Mr. Gandhi or any Congress leader received by the Viceroy, Sir Reginald Maxwell, or the Government of India, respecting the Congress resolution of 8th August, 1942; and whether any suggestion has been made from Congress sources that civil disobedience will not be embarked upon in the existing circumstances?

Mr. Amery

With regard to any correspondence which may have passed with Mr. Gandhi since his fast I have nothing to add to the reply which I gave the hon. Member on 29th July. The same applies to communications from other Congress leaders in detention. As regards the latter part of the Question no such suggestion has been received from any of the detained Congress leaders.
