HC Deb 21 June 1900 vol 84 cc625-6
MR. MACLEAN (Cardiff)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether the Ameer of Cabul has forbidden the export of horses to and the import of salt from India; and whether the Government of India has any means of checking such action on the part of a Prince who receives a subsidy from the Indian Treasury.


The Government of India has received reports from its agents which seem to confirm the action imputed to the Ameer in the hon. Member's question. As regards the second question, the hon. Member is aware that the Ameer is a sovereign who is independent in the conduct 'of his internal administration.
