§ MR. BRIGGS
asked the Under Secretary of State for India, Whether it is true that a man was executed in Barrisal Gaol on the 5th September last who had been reprieved by the Indian Government two days before; and, if so, will he also state why the reprieve did not reach Barrisal Gaol until after the execution; and, what steps have been taken to discover and adequately punish the person or persons responsible for this grave neglect of duty?
MR. K. J. CROSS
The Government of India have been asked for a Report on this case. At present, all the information the India Office has is derived from the newspapers.
