HC Deb 05 November 1906 vol 164 c89
SIR H. COTTON (Nottingham, E.)

To ask the Secretary of State for India whether those portions of the redistribution scheme of the Commander-in-Chief which proposed to place a permanent cantonment at or near Torseppah, in the mountainous country occupied by the Mohmund tribes, and to establish an artillery and cavalry cantonment between Nowshera and Hoti Murdan have been definitely abandoned.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Morley.) Sanction has been given for the new cantonment between Nowshera and Hoti-Murdan. A proposal for placing a permanent cantonment at or near Torseppah has now, I believe, been abandoned.
