HC Deb 23 October 1902 vol 113 c595

To ask the Secretary of State for India whether a Commission has yet been appointed to inquire into the Police Administration in India; and, if so, will the treatment of third class native passengers on Indian Railways by the police be inquired into.

(Answered by Secretary Lord George Hamilton.) A Commission has been appointed to inquire into Police Administration in India. One of the subjects to be inquired into is whether the existing organisation of the Railway Police is in a satisfactory condition; and, if not, what improvements can be effected. If there are any complaints regarding the treatment of native passengers by the police, they will doubtless be brought to the notice of the Commission.
