§ MR. REES (Montgomery Boroughs)
I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he can inform the House what action has been taken upon representations by the Bengal Chamber of Commerce, the Calcutta Trades Association, and the European Anglo-Indian 1663 Defence Association, urging upon the Government of India the necessity for the immediate establishment of a special tribunal of High Court Judges to deal summarily with all persons convicted of Anarchist outrages, and recommending certain additions to the existing laws of British India in order to the suppression of sedition.
§ THE UNDER - SECRETARY OF STATE FOR INDIA (Mr. BUCHANAN, Perthshire, E.)
The whole subject is being considered with the care that it demands. The Secretary of State is unable at present to say anything further.
