HC Deb 04 June 1896 vol 41 cc420-1

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India, whether his attention has been drawn to a statement in the Times of India of 18th April last, that a military force has proceeded from Wana to Haidari, Tach, and Sarwakai, and that military posts are being constructed at these places; and, whether these places are beyond the external frontiers of British India; and, if so, whether under Section 55 of the Government of India Act of 1858, the consent of both Houses of Parliament will be obtained for this expenditure?


The places mentioned in the hon. Member's Question are not beyond the external frontiers of Her Majesty's Indian possessions; the section which he cites, therefore, does not apply to the case.
