§ SIR MANCHERJEE BHOWNAGGREE (Bethnal Green, N.E.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India if he has yet received a dispatch from the Government of Bombay on the riots which recently took place in that city; whether, if such a dispatch has been received, he will state the particulars contained in it, especially as regards the origin of the riots; and, if he will place the dispatch upon the Table of the House?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR INDIA (Lord G. HAMILTON,) Middlesex, Ealing
I informed my hon. Friend a few days ago that I expected to receive a dispatch on the subject of the Bombay riots shortly. I am now able to say that it will reach me, in all probability, about the 25th inst. As soon as it arrives I will consider whether a copy can be laid on the Table of the House.
