HC Deb 30 May 1906 vol 158 cc409-10

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether having regard to the statements of responsible Indian authorities that the agitation against the partition of Bengal is rapidly growing and that the boycott of Manchester goods is serious and threatening, he can make any statement to reassure the Manchester trading public.


I am not aware that responsible Indian authorities have made such statements as the hon. Gentleman refers to; but he may be assured that, the Government of India is watching the course of events with all possible attention.
