The Gandhi-Irwin pact led to a suspension of the civil disobedience movement and Gandhi’s participation in the second session. Only the Federal Structure and Minorities Committees resumed their work, as the government contended with a mounting economic crisis and a general election. Tensions between the Princes regarding models for federal integration, and between Hindu and Muslim delegates regarding weightage in the provinces, stymied the conference. It concluded with repeated government commitments to federation and pledges to continue work in India by travelling committees and by delegates working under the Viceroy in New Delhi.
The membership of the third conference session numbered 108. For selected delegate profiles, see the links below:
