Part 3. […] but he has agreed to listen to the views presented to him and report to the British Government according to his own conclusions. He has insisted, however, that the calling of the conference must not be taken to commit the Government to any course except that of hearing representations. He has called a meeting of Council to obtain their approval, and has informed the Governors of the deputation and the suggested course to be taken. Gandhi has agreed to attend the conference, but has not yet replied about the Prince’s visit. Reading wishes to obtain the British Government’s approval of his intended action.
