HC Deb 02 May 1895 vol 33 cc283-4

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India if his attention has been called to an article published in The Times of India of 13th March 1895, over the signature, "A Married Officer," showing that there is a strong movement in the Indian Army for acting contrary to the Resolution of the House of Commons and the recent legislation in India for the Amendment of the Cantonment Acts; and if he will state what provisions the recent legislation makes for the prevention of violations of the purpose of its enactment?


I have seen the letter referred to by my hon. Friend. The Penal Code provides for the punishment of any breach of the rules laid down by Government.
