§ 31. Colonel DAY
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he has received a report of the conference which took place at Mount Abu, on 27th June, between the representatives of the Government of India and the maritime States in the Kathiawar Peninsula; whether he will give the names of the States chiefly concerned which were represented at the conference; whether any decisions were arrived at; and can he make a statement?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Earl Winterton)
My Noble Friend is aware that at the recent conference held at Mount Abu an agreement 1428 was not reached, but as a full report of the proceedings has not yet been received I am not in a position to make a statement. The States chiefly concerned were Nawangar, Morvi, Junagadh, Porbandar and Baroda.
§ Earl WINTERTON
I am not in a position to state at the moment whether the Report of the proceedings will be published or not.
