Correct Answer - Option 3 : Lord Pethick‑Lawrence

Cabinet Mission was a high-powered mission sent in February 1946 to India by the Atlee Government (British Prime Minister.)

  • The mission had three British cabinet members - Pethick Lawrence, Stafford Cripps, & and A.V. Alexander.
  • The Cabinet Mission’s aim was to discuss the transfer of power from British to Indian leadership.

 Members of this mission are as follows:

  • Pethick Lawrence - Secretary of State for India
  • Stafford Cripps - President of the Board of Trade
  • A.V. Alexander - First Lord of Admiralty

Thus, we can say that when Cabinet Mission came to India, its secretary was Pethick Lawrence.
