The Cripps Mission

Excerpt

I went to India last autumn to study the constitutional problem under the auspices of Nuffield College. I had spent four months in the country and was on the point of returning home to draft my report, when Sir Stafford Cripps arrived. At his request I stayed on and joined his staff. I was thus enabled to observe the work of his Mission at close quarters; and, though it cannot yet be seen in its true historical perspective, it seemed to me worth while to attempt a brief record of it while my impressions were still fresh. Sir Stafford has kindly allowed me to do this on the understanding that it is a personal and wholly unofficial record and that for the statements and opinions it contains the responsibility is solely mine.

WOOTTON HILL May, 1942.
