§ * SIR CHARLES DALRYMPLE (Ipswich)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India if he has observed a Special Report of the Select Committee on Petitions in reference to Petitions presented to this House from India; and if he will call the attention of the Government of India to the Report, in order that the Petitioners may be put upon their guard and may better understand the limited effect of Petitions.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR INDIA (Mr. BRODRICK,) Surrey, Guildford
A copy of the Report will be forwarded to the Government of India with instructions that, so far as is possible, steps may be taken for carrying out the recommendations of the Committee.
§ MR. SWIFT MACNEILL
Are we to understand, then, that the Petitions addressed to this House by the people of India do no good?
