In response to the inadequacy of the Simon Report, the Labour Government, which had come to power under Ramsay MacDonald in 1929, decided to hold a series of Round Table Conferences in London. The First Round Table Conference convened from 12 November 1930 to 19 January 1931. Prior to the Conference, M. K. Gandhi had initiated the Civil Disobedience Movement on behalf of the Indian National Congress. Consequently, since many of the Congress' leaders were in jail, Congress did not participate in the First Conference, but representatives from all other Indian parties and a number of Princes did. The outcomes of the first Round Table Conference were minimal: India was to develop into a federation, safeguards regarding defence and finance were agreed and other departments were to be transferred. However, little was done to implement these recommendations and Civil Disobedience continued in India. The British Government realized that the Indian National Congress needed to be a part of deciding the future of the Constitutional Government in India. The most notable Indian leaders participating in the Conference were as follows: Muslim League: Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Muhammad Shafi, Aga Khan, Muham Hindu Mahasabha: S. Moonje and M.R. Jayakar Indian Liberal Party: Tej Bahadur Sapru, C. Y. Chintamani and Srinivasa Sastri The Untouchables: B. R. Ambedkar Sikhs: Sardar Ujjal Singh
