Gandhi-Irwin Pact

The Gandhi-Irwin Pact was an agreement brokered by Mohandas Gandhi and British viceroy Lord Irwin, in which the British colonial government freed all political prisoners and allowed the making of salt (but not its sale), in return for the suspension of the civil disobedience movement. It was signed in March 1931.
