HC Deb 23 November 1888 vol 331 cc4-5
MR. BRADLAUGH (Northampton)

asked the Under Secretary of State for India, Whether the Madras Government and the Government of India have received Memorials from Mirasdars of Thattathimoolai, Nannilam, Talug, Tan-jore, alleging that certain remissions of revenue have been improperly cancelled, such, remission having been made to the village, pursuant to the Revenue Regulations, by the Head Assistant Collector, after due inspection, in consequence of the great damage and suffering caused by the repeated heavy floods destroying the crops; and, whether the Government will take any action in the matter?


The Secretary of State for India has not received any information or Reports concerning the Memorials referred to, nor has any representation on the matter reached him. As at present advised, the Secretary of State does not propose to take any action in the matter; but he will draw the attention of the Madras Government to the hon. Member's Question.
