India and the Labour Party, 1929–31
This chapter examines the Indian policy of the second Labour Government, arguing that many of the official obstacles that had hampered progress in 1924 were removed at the initiative of the Viceroy, and others were attacked by the Labour ministers through novel institutional forms such as the round table conference and the (unsuccessful) attempt to appoint a Viceroy of their own. It is argued, however, that the key weakness remained: the lack of an effective working alliance between British left-wingers and Congress. The principal reasons for this absence are identified through an analysis of the visit made by Gandhi to Britain in 1931.
