HC Deb 16 December 1948 vol 459 c206W
125. Mr. Philips Price

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has considered the request of the Government of the Indian Union for a plebiscite to be held in Mauritius to determine whether the population of the island wishes to join the India Union or not.

Mr. Creech Jones

Neither my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations nor myself have received any such request from the Government of India, and the question accordingly does not arise.
