In an interview with an US-American journalist Gandhi said in summer 1931:
Journalist: "Mr. Gandhi, you may tell us, please, when you expect to leave for London for the second Round Table Conference."
Gandhi: "I have no notion and I don't expect to go there if the Hindu Muslim question is not satisfactorily solved."
Journalist: "If England agreed to your demands, Mr. Gandhi, do you intend to keep complete prohibition in the new Indian states?"
Gandhi: "Oh yes."
Journalist: "Absolute prohibition?"
Gandhi: "Absolute."
Journalist: "And do you intend also, if India wins its independence, to abolish child marriages?"
Gandhi: "I should very much like to, even before."
Journalist: "If England was not fulfilling your demands are you prepared to return to jail again?"
Gandhi: "I am always prepared to return to jail."
Journalist: "Would you be prepared to die in the cause of India's independence?"
Gandhi: "This is a bad question."
Journalist: "If you go to the second Round Table Conference will you go attired in your native Indian dress or will you prefer European dress?"
Gandhi: "I shall certainly not be found in European dress and if the weather permitted I should present myself exactly as I am today."
Journalist: "And if the King of England invited you to dinner at Buckingham Palace, you wouldn't go in your customary Indian dress?"
Gandhi:"In any other dress I should be most discourteous to him because I should be artificial."
