HC Deb 31 October 1932 vol 269 cc1413-5

asked the Sectary of State for India whether he can state if the date of the Round Table Conference is yet definitely fixed; and which of the Indian delegates invited have intimated their intention of attending?


I cannot at the moment give a more definite date than that indicated in the communiqué which was recently issued on this matter—that the Conference will begin about the 15th November. The same communiqué gave a list of the delegates who have been invited and four further names were published yesterday. All of these have expressed their intention of attending, and I am circulating in the OFFICIAL REPORT a complete list of the Indian delegates.

Following is the list:

The Indian Delegations at the Indian Round Table Conference which is to be held next month will be constituted as follows:

Indian States.

Invitations were issued to the Rulers of the States named below with the option to nominate representatives fully qualified to speak on behalf of the State:

State and Representative.

In addition, the Raja of Sarila will attend as representative of the small States.

British, India.
