HC Deb 27 March 1945 vol 409 c1325W
Mr. Kendall

asked the Secretary of State for Burma when it is proposed that the Governor and the Government of Burma will leave Simla and where the new seat of Government is to be fixed in Burma pending the occupation of Rangoon.

Mr. Amery

So long as Burma is the scene of active military operations there must be a period of military control. It is impossible at this stage to say when conditions will be such as to permit of the return of the civil Government to Burma or where it will be first established.
