§ MR. GRAHAM (St. Pancras, W.)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for India how many expeditions are at present being carried out against dacoits in Burma, and what is the total number of troops, British and native, actively employed at present on these expeditions?
MR. GEORGE RUSSELL
So far as the Secretary of State is aware, five military police parties are now engaged in the Bhamo district against dacoits. The strength originally fixed for these several parties varied from 60 to 300 men.
