HC Deb 18 June 1883 vol 280 cc800-1

asked the Under Secretary of State for India, Whether he can communicate to the House any information regarding the official reports upon the Criminal Procedure Bill; and, whether the Government will telegraph to India, directing that the reports of the Bengal and Assam officials which have already been received shall be sent home at once, for the information of this House?


Sir, I can only inform the hon. Member for Eye that the Government of India are aware of our anxiety to have the answers to the last Circular on the Criminal Procedure Amendment Act sent home as soon as possible, and it is quite unnecessary to telegraph for these Reports to be sent piecemeal.
