What changes in Britain caused the formation of the Cabinet Mission?

Answer:

Following changes in the conditions in Britain caused the formation of the Cabinet Mission:

  1. The Second World War saw a decline in the power of Britain and the emergence of the US and USSR as the new superpowers. Both these powers supported India’s demand for political independence.
  2. Even though Britain had emerged victorious in the Second World War, it was a Pyrrhic victory. Its economic and military might was lost and it was going to take a long time before it could rehabilitate itself.
  3. The change of government in Britain saw the Labour Party coming to power. Many Labour leaders were in favour of the Congress demands.
  4. The British armed forces were weary from the long drawn out war they had fought for their country for six years. Neither the political leadership nor the military brass was in a condition to suppress the Indian people’s struggle for freedom.
