29 O. D. Skelton, External Affairs, to F. C. Blair, Immigration, 9 Sept. 1939, Immigration 536999(16): 'I need not remind you that the Komagata Maru incident coincided pretty closely with the outbreak of the last Great War, and that its repercussions in India proved to be profound and disturbing. I think that, on grounds of general policy, we should do everything we can to prevent the recurrence of anything that might be remotely compared to that unfortunate affair.'
