HC Deb 02 August 1904 vol 139 c520
MR. SCHWANN (Manchester, N.)

To, ask the Secretary of State for India, with regard to the proposals under consideration for better utilisation of the Indian indigenous village police as distinguished from the the uniformed district police, can some such proposals towards extended use of the village police as partly substituting them for district police be given effect to without waiting for any elaborated plan dealing with the whole subject of the India police services.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Brodrick.) I am unable to make any announcement as to measures to be undertaken to give effect to the recommendations of the India Police Commission until I receive the conclusions of the Government of India upon the Report. As I have already stated on previous occasions, that Government has been asked to deal with the Report as expeditiously as possible.
