HC Deb 20 December 1906 vol 167 c1701
Dr. RUTHERFORD (Middlesex, Brentford)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether he will have a map of the North Western Frontier of India printed and circulated amongst Members of the House showing the statutory border of British India, British garrisons, railways (military and otherwise), and the physical character of the country lying between British India and the nearest Russian outposts.

*The SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (MR. Morley, Montrose Burghs)

The requirements of the case seem to be sufficiently mot by the map of the North West Frontier Province published with the Moral and Material Progress Report of 1900–1 which of course has been presented to Parliament. All the information that can be made public will be given in the maps of the forthcoming Gazetteer which will show the administrative border, the districts beyond it under direct British administration and "Native States" territory. But these maps will not be ready until the autumn of next year.
