§ MR. S. SMITH
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether his attention has been drawn to a Memorial which a number of women of ill-fame have sent to the Governor of the Bombay Presidency with reference to the work of the Bombay Midnight Mission; and is he aware that on the following Wednesday to the presentation of the Memorial the Commissioners of Police had the whole of the Midnight Mission turned out of the street in which these women resided; and whether the police were justified in so doing?
§ MR. H. H. FOWLER
My attention has been called to the publication in a Bombay newspaper of such a Memorial as is described in my hon. Friend's question. I have telegraphed for information as to the action of the police in the matter.
