§ MR. M'LAGAN
asked the Under Secretary of State for India, Whether he will state the names of the new Council of Regency at Hyderabad; and, whether he will give an assurance that they will now be permitted to urge the claims of the Hyderabad State to the restoration of its Berar Provinces by constitutional means instead of being prevented from doing so, as was done in the case of the late Sir Salar Jung?
§ MR. J. K. CROSS
, in reply, said, the Council would be under the Presidency of the Nizam, and was framed as follows:—Nawab Bushir-ud-Dowlah, Nawab Kurshid, Jah, Rajah Narendur Rao, Peshkar, with Sir Salar Jung's eldest son, Mir Laik Ali, as secretary. The question of the claim of the Hyderabad State to the restoration of the Berar Provinces could not be considered till after the Nizam came of age, and they were in a position to judge what the character of the future administration of his territories would be.
