asked the Under-Secretary of State for India if he will state the future arrangements in connection with the operations hitherto conducted by the Delhi Conference; and particularly about such operations as are not to be transferred to a disposals board.

I assume that the operations referred to by the hon. and gallant Member are those of the Eastern Group Supply Council. This Council was set up following the Eastern Group Supply Conference held at Delhi in November, 1940, to ensure the fullest use for war purposes of the productive resources of Eastern Group countries. I am afraid that it is too early to say what the future of the Council will be. None of its functions are to be transferred to the Government of India Disposals Board.
