§ 5. Mr. RHYS DAVIES
asked the Secretary of State for India what is the present position in regard to the negotiations between the railway authorities and the railway workers' trade unions in India on the question of the dismissal of lower grade railway employés in effecting retrenchment?
§ Sir S. HOARE
I have just been informed by the Government of India that they propose to issue a communique announcing their conclusions on the report of the court of inquiry which was set up to investigate certain matters connected with staff retrenchments on the Indian railways. I expect to receive copies of the communique by Air Mail and I shall send one to the hon. Member.
