HC Deb 27 May 1907 vol 174 c1314

I beg to ask the Undersecretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware that six natives of the Punjab, who recently resigned Government service in Nigeria, are returning to India with a sense that they have been harshly treated; and whether he will inquire into the matter.


It is the case that six natives of the Punjab, who have recently resigned their appointments in Northern Nigeria are at present in this country on their way back to India. They have submitted to the Secretary of State a statement of their case, and the hon. Member may rest assured that it will receive attention.
