HC Deb 06 July 1904 vol 137 cc779-80
MR. H. D. GREENE (Shrewsbury)

To ask the Secretary of State for War whether any regulation has been recently adopted as to dispensing with or otherwise altering the attendance at Courts-Martial in India of a Deputy Judge-Advocate, and on what grounds, and whether such change was approved by the Government before it was made; and, if so, whether the presence of an independent official possessing special legal knowledge is no longer considered requisite to safeguard the interests of accused soldiers at Courts-Martial.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Brodrick.) No report on the subject has been received from the Government of India. I will make inquiries.
