MR. HERBERT ROBERTS (Denbighshire, W.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether his attention has been drawn to a coolie riot which occurred on 19th May last at a tea garden in Assam, in consequence of which forty-two coolies have been sentenced to various terms of imprisonment; and whether he can supply 1445 information as to the causes which led to this outbreak.
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR INDIA (Earl PERCY,) Kensington, S.
I have noticed the account of the riot given in the newspapers. I have no further information regarding it.
