asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has considered the representations and public appeal for political and social reform made by Don Arthur Silva Wijayasinghe, the Padikara Mudaliyar of Ceylon; and whether he has made any reply thereto?

I have recently seen copies of a statement issued to the Ceylon Press on 4th March, 1942, by Mr. Wijayasinghe. As regards constitutional reform in Ceylon, I would invite my hon.
