§ MR. ALEXANDER M'ARTHUR
asked the Under Secretary of State for India, Whether it is true, as reported in the "Times of India," that since the deposition of the Gaikwar his legal 876 advisers have not been allowed access to him; and, whether application for such permission has been made by telegraph to the Secretary of State; and, if so, what reply has his Lordship returned?
§ LORD GEORGE HAMILTON
Sir, I believe application has been made by the Indian legal advisers of the Gaikwar for access to him, and a similar request was made to the Secretary of State on Tuesday last by his legal advisers in England. The Secretary of State is at the present moment in communication with the Government of India upon this matter, and if the hon. Gentleman will repeat the latter part of his Question a few days hence, I shall then be able to communicate to him the decision which has been arrived at.
