§ SIR HENRY TYLER
asked the Under Secretary of State for India, Whether, having regard to recent events, it is intended to strengthen the British Forces in India?
§ MR. J. K. CROSS
In answering this Question I will also reply to the hon. Member for Athlone (Mr. Justin Huntly M'Carthy). The Earl of Dufferin has not asked for any increase of the number of British troops; and Her Majesty's Government have not thought it necessary to strengthen the British Forces in India.
