§ SIR JOSEPH PEASE (Durham, Barnard Castle)
I wish to ask the Under Secretary of State for India a question of which I have given him private notice: whether any reply has been received from the Chief Commissioner of Burmah to the Despatch of 29th July, to the Government of India, and paragraph 9 of that Despatch, as to the possibility of a total prohibition of the use of opium?
THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR INDIA (Mr. CURZON,) Lancashire, Southport
No reply has yet been received by the Secretary of State.
§ MR. BRYCE (Aberdeen, S.)
Will a Return be given of the issue of licences for the sale of intoxicating liquors and opium in Burmah, or is it desirable to move for it?
