HC Deb 17 April 1946 vol 421 c449W
72. Mr. Gammans

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if any decision has yet been reached by the State Council in Ceylon as to the adoption of Sinhalese and Tamil as the official languages.

Mr. George Hall

A Select Committee of the State Council was appointed in September, 1945, to consider this question. I have not yet heard that the Committee has reported, but I am inquiring of the Governor.
