HC Deb 07 July 1902 vol 110 c931

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India if he will state the number of writs and warrants issued in India against land revenue defaulters during the year ending 31st March last, and the amount which it was thus sought to recover. And will the Government of India consider the expediency of remitting all arrears of land revenue in districts affected by the recent famine.


I am unable to give the information asked for in the first part of the question, as the provincial reports for the period referred to have not yet reached me. The Government of India have already remitted all arrears of land revenue due to drought in the distressed districts, and they are not prepared to go further than this.
