§ MR. HERBERT LEWIS (Flint Boroughs)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether a memorial in favour of separating judicial from executive functions was forwarded to the Government of India in July, 1899, for consideration and report; and whether any, and, if so, what report on the subject has been received from the Government of India.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR INDIA (Lord G. HAMILTON,) Middlesex, Ealing
The memorial to which the hon. Member's question refers was forwarded to the Government of India in August, 1899. I have not yet received the Government of India's report upon it.
