MR. HERBERT ROBERTS (Denbighshire, W.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether he has received any information as to the reported raid on Sunday last of a force of Waziris upon cattle in the Lower Kuram, and as to the encounter which took place between these tribesmen and a pursuing party; and whether any further developments are expected to arise out of this incident.
§ LORD GEORGE HAMILTON
I have received no official information on the subject of this incident, and am therefore disposed to believe that no political importance is attached to it. The conditions of this part of the Indian frontier are such that raids of this kind are not an unusual occurrence.
